Rat Brain Digital Reconstruction Helps Pave the Way to Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence has grown to become one of the most important and controversial topics in science today. Obviously there is great benefit to developing machines that can think like humans, but there are also many negative implications associated with this. The good news is that we are probably many years still away from the kind of world-dominating artificial intelligence portrayed in science fiction. More good news: we continue to make progress into understanding not only how this could benefit us but how, exactly, the mechanics will work. In a new experiment, for example, scientists have been able to digitally reconstruct the mechanics of a rat brain, but with a computer.“We can’t and don’t have to measure everything,” explains EPFL lead researcher Henry Markram. “The brain is a well-ordered structure, so…
