Danko Nikolic

Danko Nikolic is associated with the Max-Planck Institute for Brain Research, Ernst Strüngmann Institute, Frankfurt Institute for Advanced Studies, and the University of Zagreb.

The ultimate goal of his studies is twofold. First, to achieve conceptual understanding of how the dynamics of physical processes creates the mental ones. He believes work on practopoiesis is an important step in this direction that will help address the hard problem of consciousness and the mind-body problem in general. Second, to use this theoretical knowledge to create artificial systems that are biologically-like intelligent and adaptive.
