A Computer That Works Like The Brain

Discussion in 'Science and Nature' started by Liquidtruth, Aug 3, 2008.

  1. Researcher Kwabena Boahen is looking for ways to mimic the brain's supercomputing powers in silicon -- because the messy, redundant processes inside our heads actually make for a small, light, superfast computer.

    Great video in my ever-so-humble opinion. :p
  2. That was refreshing. He is the only scientist who gives me faith in the development of human-level AI through hard neural networks. The others just keep chucking more coal into the furnace and hoping it does the trick. I still think software with the current processing technology will make it first though. With current processing speeds we can create an approximate simulation of a hard neural network in software anyway.
  3. Fuck me if I ever buy a moody computer that's useless for well over 10 years.
  4. reminds me of Marvin from Hitchhiker's Guide
  5. nice video reps for you

    I've thought about this before, figure out how to create a computer based on the brain
  6. *bump* again
