New MIT brain research shows how AI could help us understand consciousness

A team of researchers from MIT and Massachusetts General Hospital recently published a study linking social awareness to individual neuronal activity. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first time evidence for the ‘theory of mind‘ has been identified at this scale. Measuring large groups of neurons is the bread-and-butter of neurology. Even a simple MRI can highlight specific regions of the brain and give scientists an indication of what they’re used for and, in many cases, what kind of thoughts are happening. But figuring out what’s going on at the single-neuron level is an entirely different feat.… This story continues at The Next Web

This mathematical brain model may pave the way for more human-like AI

Last week, Google Research held an online workshop on the conceptual understanding of deep learning. The workshop, which featured presentations by award-winning computer scientists and neuroscientists, discussed how new findings in deep learning and neuroscience can help create better artificial intelligence systems. While all the presentations and discussions were worth watching (and I might revisit them again in the coming weeks), one, in particular, stood out for me: A talk on word representations in the brain by Christos Papadimitriou, professor of computer science at the University of Columbia. In his presentation, Papadimitriou, a recipient of the Gödel Prize and Knuth Prize, discussed…This story continues at The Next Web

Sony’s new AI-powered TVs ‘mimic the human brain’

Sony has unveiled a new lineup of Bravia TVs that “mimic the human brain” to replicate how we see and hear. The devices use a new processing method that Sony calls “cognitive intelligence.” The company says it goes beyond standard AI to create an immersive visual and sound experience: While conventional AI can only detect and analyze picture elements like color, contrast, and detail individually, the new Cognitive Processor XR can cross-analyze an array of elements at once, just as our brains do. By doing so, each element is adjusted to its best final outcome, in conjunction with each other, so everything is… This story continues at The Next WebOr just read more coverage about: Sony
