Thanks to A.I, the mysteries of the mind may soon be revealed. We might learn the limitations and potential of the human mind in very short order. How this data is interpreted, and how those with power choose to exploit this data, well, that remains to be seen.
|The human brain may no longer remain a mystery thanks to AI|
Cognitive neuroscientists are using the newly-developed artificial intelligence (AI) networks to enhance the understanding of one of the most elusive intelligence systems from which they learned: the human brain.
In the work presented on Sunday at the 25th annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society (CNS), Aude Oliva of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and her colleagues are learning much about the role of contextual clues in human image recognition.
By using “artificial neurons,” essentially lines of code and software, along with neural network models, the researchers can parse out the various elements that go into recognizing a specific place or object, Xinhua reported.
“The fundamental questions cognitive neuroscientists and computer scientists seek to answer are similar,” said Oliva.
