Scientists Create Artificial Brain With 2.3 Million Simulated Neurons
Scientists Create Artificial Brain With 2.3 Million Simulated Neurons Another computer is setting its wits to perform human tasks. But this computer is different. Instead of the tour de force processing of Deep Blue or Watson’s four terabytes of facts of questionable utility, Spaun attempts to play by the same rules as the human brain to figure things out. Spaunstands for Semantic Pointer Architecture: Unified Network. Will AI brains of the future look more like Watson or Spaun? And its performance was similar to that of a human brain. The important thing here is not how well Spaun performed on the tasks – your average computer could find ways to perform much better than Spaun. Chris Eliasmith, from the University of Waterlook in Ontario, Canada and lead author of the study is happy with his cognitive creation. Watch Spaun work through its tasks in the following video. One thing Spaun can’t do is perform tasks in realtime.
