AHA! an ‘Artificial Hippocampal Algorithm’ for Episodic Machine Learning

We’re very happy to report that we recently published a preprint on AHA, an ‘Artificial Hippocampal Algorithm’ for Episodic Machine Learning. It’s the culmination of a multi-year research project and is a starting point for the next wave of developments. This article describes the motivation for developing AHA and a… Read More »AHA! an ‘Artificial Hippocampal Algorithm’ for Episodic Machine Learning

New approaches to Deep Networks – Capsules (Hinton), HTM (Numenta), Sparsey (Neurithmic Systems) and RCN (Vicarious)

  Reproduced left to right from [8,10,1] Within a 5 day span in October, 4 papers came out that take a significantly different approach to AI hierarchical networks. They are all inspired by biological principles to varying degrees. It’s exciting to see different ways of thinking. Particularly at a time… Read More »New approaches to Deep Networks – Capsules (Hinton), HTM (Numenta), Sparsey (Neurithmic Systems) and RCN (Vicarious)

Consciousness and AI

I really enjoyed reading this article Why can’t the world’s greatest minds solve the mystery of consciousness? published recently in the Guardian. It’s an engaging re-exploration of the contemporary discourse on the classic mind-body dilemma. One view is that the ‘hard problem’ of consciousness is an illusion. There is no separation between… Read More »Consciousness and AI
