Why human brains hold the key to smarter artificial intelligence

Understanding how our brains sustain ‘internal evolution’ – and help us to adapt and learn complex skills such as language – could one day lead to smarter robots.Why is it that humans are capable of learning complex languages from such an early age? And why does the solution to an ‘insight problem’ (such as connecting nine dots on a rectangular grid with four contiguous straight lines without lifting the pencil) suddenly pop into your head first thing the morning after?INSIGHT, a ground-breaking EU-funded project led by one of the current pioneers of theoretical evolutionary biology, has achieved a better understanding of exactly how we solve problems, by examining how ideas in our brains could evolve throughout our lives. The findings could have implications for programming problem-solving robotics that think for…
