We are interested in finding different mathematical approaches to learning inspired by modern Mathematics, Neuroscience and behavior


We are a group of Physicists, Mathematicians, and Biologists at Champalimaud Foundation in Lisbon.

We want to make a direct impact in society by making available new frameworks for learning, as the algebraic approach in algebraic.ai. In this approach no function extremization is used but, instead, small and free algebraic models are built using 3 types of inputs: formal knowledge, labeled data, and outputs from other learning systems.  

We also build applications, for example, to track and model collective behavior using deep learning, as in idtracker.ai, and in collective intelligence. This complements our previous work in this field like this, this, even this, or this other one.  Before this work, we enjoyed thinking about neuronal coding, deviations from optimality in biologywiring economy and quantum mechanics.

You can also find more of our work present and past at google scholar.
