James McClelland, Director of the Center for Mind, Brain, and Computation at the University of Stanford (United States).

Prof. McClelland has been awarded the C.L. de Carvalho-Heineken Prize for Cognitive Science 2014 for his important and fundamental contributions to the use of neural networks to model cognitive processes of the brain.

The awarding of the Dr A.H. Heineken Prize for Art 2014 to Dutch artist Wendelien van Oldenborgh was announced by the KNAW last March.

Award ceremony

De Heineken Prizes 2014 will be presented on Thursday 2 October 2014 at a special meeting of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences in the Beurs van Berlage in Amsterdam.

Heineken Young Scientists Awards will be presented at that occasion as well to five talented young researchers whose work may serve as an example to other young scientists and scholars.
