Pushing the Boundaries of Artificial Intelligence | BU Today | Boston University

Pushing the Boundaries of Artificial Intelligence | BU Today | Boston University | Global Brain | Scoop.it

"Versace (GRS’07), a College of Arts & Sciences research assistant professor in the cognitive and neural systems department, calls this limited capability “special-purpose intelligence,” and his group is aiming for something much more sophisticated. The Neuromorphics Lab, launched in summer 2010 as part of the National Science Foundation–funded Center of Excellence for Learning in Education, Science, and Technology, is pushing the boundaries of artificial intelligence by creating a new kind of computer that can sense, learn, and adapt—all the behaviors that come naturally to a living brain.

BU is well known for its work in computational neuroscience—creating computer algorithms that describe the complex behavior of brains. The Neuromorphics Lab draws on that tradition, but is focused on turning this fundamental knowledge into real-world applications. The primary project is an ambitious program to develop what Versace refers to as a “brain on a chip.” The project, dubbed MoNETA (Modular Neural Exploring Traveling Agent), also the name for the Roman goddess of memory, would become the brain behind virtual and robotic agents that can learn on their own to interact with new environments, using the information they glean to make decisions and perform tasks."

 

...Also this team seem to apply a variation of the challenge concept.

You Have a Hive Mind

Every decision you make is essentially a committee act. Members chime in, options are weighed, and eventually a single proposal for action is approved by consensus. The committee, of course, is the densely knit society of neurons in your head.
