Neuromorphic Computing Is a Big Deal for A.I., But What Is It?

Neuromorphic Computing Is a Big Deal for A.I., But What Is It?

We often talk about how traditional computing is reaching its limit–there’s a threshold we can’t move past without making some seriously big changes to the way we structure computers. One of those exciting ways is by making physical computers a little more like human brains. We introduced this concept in more detail here, but a […]

Time and the brain: the illusion of now | Hinze Hogendoorn | TEDxUtrechtUniversity

Translator: Fatma Abdeldaem Reviewer: Rhonda Jacobs Good evening, everyone. So the theme of today’s event is change. Change from within, but what is the one thing that all change needs? The one thing that all change needs is time. Change needs time, it needs now and then. Without either of those there’s no change. But […]

The Mohawk of Consciousness: Neuroscience, Computing & Assessing Awareness | Dr Srivas Chennu

hi everyone i’m Srivas Chennu and I’m a lecturer in computing at Kent. I’d like to tell you about something that’s fascinating me as a research topic and that’s consciousness, human consciousness and I’m going tell you something more about why I call it the ‘Mohawk of consciousness’. Really, the story starts way back in […]

HOW to get more quality sleep | (Science of Sleep Pt 2)

I assume you’re here because you already understand that sleep is a top priority for good health. But in either case let me first quickly point out just one thing about sleep. Before you stay up late to get just little bit more work done, or to watch that movie newly added to netflix, think […]

Our Senses: What Sluggish Sloths Tell Us About Balance

[MUSIC PLAYS]>>ROB DESALLE, CURATOR: Balance and hearing are usually associated with each other because the organs that do the sensing of sound waves and that detect position, they’re very close to each other. They’re in the inner ear. They work in somewhat the same fashion, too. The cochlea that detects the sound waves has fluid […]

Mapping the mouse brain

Mapping the mouse brain

This is the most detailed map of the mouse brain ever created. Each color flash illuminates the sprawling path of a single neuron. Janelia’s MouseLight team has now mapped more than 1,000 neurons, which stretch more than 80 meters. Such a detailed wiring diagram could help scientists better understand how the brain works. Computer programs […]

Face Blindness study sheds light on typical brain function – Science Nation

[Music] Miles O’Brien: To meet her, you’d never know it. But, Dacia Reid has brain damage. A car coming out of a blind alley knocked her off her bike when she was child. Brad Duchaine: Face processing is especially dependent on the right temporal lobe, and so it’s on the side here. Miles O’Brien: Dacia […]

Scientists Have Just Made Their Own Brain (WOW)

Scientists Have Just Made Their Own Brain (WOW)

No doubt you’ve all heard about the brain in a vat theory in which scientists ponder the scenario of us not being connected to our bodies. In this thought experiment we are merely brains, suspended in some kind of life-sustaining liquid and connected to a super-computer that gives us consciousness. If the computer tricks the […]
