Studying Human Neurons To Build Smarter Robots By Joshua A. Krisch

Biology is messy, but it works. And computer scientists want to harness that quality to create smarter machines Artificial intelligence is still not as fast or reliable as human intelligence—which is perhaps a relief for those of you with nightmares of the robot takeover. But now, a new study in PLoS Computational Biology explains why the human brain’s enigmatic but effective design works so well—and how we can harness that power to make smarter machines. More Artificial Intelligence Wrote A Weird Sci-Fi Screenplay On Its Own Hierarchy—the ability to divide units into smaller, functional parts—is the driving force behind every biological system. Our very bodies are organized into organ systems which are made of of organs, organs made up of tissues and tissues made up of cells. We could go on. But…
