New AI study: Physical Intelligence

The recent study done by DARPA to uncover mysteries of human intelligence, approaches the subject from a different perspective. The study seeks to model how intelligence works by creating a new theory that is based on principles of thermodynamics. The laws of thermodynamics deal with the total energy within any given closed or open system, […]

Robot navigation system that can remember visited places

British Scientists have created a robot navigation system that is based on visual recognition of a set of different objects in a particular scene,which enables the navigating robot recognize the location if it has been visited before. The robot does this by assigning a definitive description to the scene which consists of 1000 words, every […]

Developing a robot that evolves its moves

Developing of the brain is highly interconnected with our senses. To simulate the natural brain development, the AI research needs to include sensory input and output constantly feeding information back and forth to the controlling mechanism. This is where the backbone of our intelligence lies. The article in New Scientist in the link below, is […]

Can IBM replicate human brain?

It is now a reality that after decades of computer history, we are nowhere near to a real artificial intelligence. This is not like the computer programmers of the past were probably envisioning our age. The common thought a couple decades ago was, as soon as the computers have enough processing capability, the Artificial Intelligence […]

Carnegie Mellon Theory of Visual Computation Reveals How Brain Makes Sense of Natural Scenes

PITTSBURGH: Computational neuroscientists at Carnegie Mellon University have developed a computational model thatprovides insight into the function of the brain’s visual cortex and the information processing that enables people to perceive contours and surfaces, and understand what they see in the world around them. A type of visual neuron known as simple cells can detect […]
