Artificial Intelligence Solved This Audio Illusion. Can You?

Artificial Intelligence Solved This Audio Illusion. Can You?

Now, did you hear what I was saying? Clearly enough that you could, say, write it in dow the comments? If so, you just experienced a phenomenon called The Cocktail Party Effect. You can hear me while there’s people talking right next to us or if there’s a jazz band across the room. This is […]

Stefano Mancuso: The roots of plant intelligence

Stefano Mancuso: The roots of plant intelligence

Sometimes I go browsing [through] a very old magazine. I found this observation test about the story of the ark. And the artist that drew this observation test did some errors, had some mistakes — there are more or less 12 mistakes. Some of them are very easy. There is a funnel, an aerial part, […]

A Brand New Type of Brain Cell | SciShow News

[ INTRO ] You might think that scientists have the human body pretty well figured out. They’ve only been studying it for, I don’t know, centuries. But a study published this week in the journal Nature Neuroscience documents a piece of ourselves that we didn’t know existed until now: a brand-new type of brain cell. […]

Le blob, une intelligence sans cervelle? Fiction ou réalité: Audrey Dussutour at TEDxToulouse

Translator: Valérie Boor Reviewer: Tatjana Jevdjic Hi everyone! Today, I’m going to talk to you about a living organism that I’m working on in my research laboratory at CNRS, that we affectionally call the blob. So here’s what the blob looks like. Surely you’ve already seen some. You didn’t know that this was called a […]

The Science of Internet Addiction & Brainpower

In September of 1848, a 25 year old named Phineas Gage was working on a railroad in Vermont when some explosive powder ignited prematurely and sent an iron rod flying through his cheek and out the top of his skull- demolishing his prefrontal cortex. The rod was later found about 30 yards from the explosion, […]

10 differences between artificial intelligence and human intelligence

10 differences between artificial intelligence and human intelligence

Today I want to tell you what is artificial about artificial intelligence. There is of course, the obvious, which is that the brain is warm, wet, and wiggly, while a computer is not. But more importantly, there are structural differences between human and artificial intelligence, which I will get to in a moment. But before […]

How mini-brains could revolutionise neuroscience | Masters of Science

In terms of computational power, the human brain far surpasses any animal in the animal kingdom. It’s what makes us special, but we still don’t understand how it arises, and so that’s what me and my lab were trying to figure out. The thing that makes our brains so special is the number of connections […]

McKnight Brain Institute Brain Awareness Week 2018

Let’s just start with a simple question, okay? Who can tell me, what does our brain do? Brain Awareness Week is a set of activities with the ultimate goal to reach out to younger students and kids to let them know more about the brain. So can you touch the ball? Brain Awareness Week is […]

Artificial Intelligence Tool Developed for Alzheimer’s Research

The current way we do things as neuropathologists can be very tedious and time-consuming. We look at hundreds of slides every week to try to understand the diagnosis. What I wanted to do along with my colleagues is to speed up this process. How can we get better data quicker? So to start this process, […]
