Consciousness is a famously hard problem, so Hod Lipson is starting from the basics: with self-aware robots that can help us understand how we think.
The latest AI algorithms are probing the evolution of galaxies, calculating quantum wave functions, discovering new chemical compounds and more. Is there anything that scientists do that can’t be automated?
To make headway on the mystery of consciousness, some researchers are trying a rigorous new way to test competing theories.
Neural networks can be as unpredictable as they are powerful. Now mathematicians are beginning to reveal how a neural network’s form will influence its function.
Neural networks are famously incomprehensible, so Been Kim is developing a “translator for humans.”
A visual prank exposes an Achilles’ heel of computer vision systems: Unlike humans, they can’t do a double take.
Machine learning techniques are commonly based on how the visual system processes information. To beat their limitations, scientists are drawing inspiration from the sense of smell.
A unique neurological “functional fingerprint” allows scientists to explore the influence of genetics, environment and aging on brain connectivity.
