Imagine an artificial Intelligence as fast as human brain say Harvard scientists

Your task is to create an artificial intelligence which is as fast as the human brain, the US Federal Government told Harvard University when it was awarded a grant of $28 million. The money has gone to Harvard’s John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, its Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, and its Center for Brain Science. The three faculties will now develop new machine learning algorithms by ‘pushing the frontiers of neuroscience’. Current artificial intelligence is incredibly slow at recognising things. IARPA (Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity) funds large-scale research projects aimed at addressing the most difficult challenges facing the US intelligence community. Imagine what a bio-inspired artificial intelligence is capable of. The aim is to make it as smart or even superior to the human brain.…
