Research of professor Marko Puljic focuses on developing novel artificial intelligent system motivated by the operation of brains and the study of brain-like computing that operates through chaotic dynamical system or chaotic dynamical memories. At CLION Lab and AI Lab at Amherst, Marko conducted research on neural networks, machine learning, knowledge acquisition, computational neuroscience, and neurally-inspired computing for processing of big data for the brain-computer interfaces and autonomous decision support systems. Professor's greatest personal interest are visiting the sources of fresh water sources in America.
