As the hunt for general artificial intelligence aka “thinking, conscious machines” heats up some of the more promising projects are getting a modest level of funding, and it now seems likely we’ll have some significant progress over the next few years. Hopefully
We’ve written a lot about DARPA SyNAPSE and the BLUE BRAIN projects, but a new exciting one in Europe (not sure about the name though) is called …
Novel Brain‐Inspired Learning Paradigms for Large‐Scale
• Our vision: To build a novel type of computing
machinery, exhibiting human‐like learning
• Our approach: To port leaning and adaptation
mechanisms in the brain to brain‐inspired
• Our path: An interdisciplinary roadmap from
neuroscience to technology.
•Explore: Use cutting‐edge techniques to gain
insight in how the brain learns.
•Understand: Understand the results through
mathematical analysis and simulation.
• Implement: Study the implementation in novel
