AI Brain Patterns

AI Brain Patterns

Researchers from places such as Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, the University of Cambridge, and many other institutes are currently stating that our general and practical understanding of how the human brain makes intelligent decisions has hit a new high. This is important for the world of AI brain patterns in robotic. Although these robots should be able to far surpass the capabilities of the human brain, some of the systems our brain uses to make decisions and analyze things could be crucial to reaching the desired points with these artificial intelligent robots that seem to be the hot topic at the moment. In our ever-changing world its crucial that both robots and humans are capable of adaptation. The latter has the ability to make decisions that allow adaptation, however so far the former still has to rely on predetermined data.

For many years the focus has appeared to be on the physical abilities of the robots being developed, rapid progress has been made in maximizing how well robots can traverse and overcome obstacles, for instance. Despite these incredible technological achievements, there has been a level of stagnation in terms of the actual central core mind of the devices that decides how to actually use the maneuvres it’s given. This is why researchers at the aforementioned institutes are now looking to integrate human strategies of thinking and neuroscience into the bots, in hopes that it will boost progress on the control side of robots.

The biggest long-standing problem developers have always faced has been “how do you translate brain activity that we don’t fully understand into computer code?” However, researchers claim that there has now potentially been enough breakthroughs in understanding to possibly integrate systems, such as the one that allows humans to switch between thinking methods to solve complex situations. Another example of a system researchers claim they now have a sufficient understanding of is that of pain and the system that alerts humans when there is an injury, and they say this could be integrated into AI brain patterns.

“We need a way of modelling the human brain to find how it interacts with the world in real-life to test whether and how different abnormalities in these models give rise to certain disorders” explained professor Seymour, “For instance, if we could reproduce anxiety behavior or obsessive-compulsive disorder in a robot, we could then predict what we need to do to treat it in humans.” So could these sorts of Ai integration systems effectively help to cure mental illnesses such as depression? It would seem so if these researchers observations and theories are accurate.

Another thing that has been stated as a benefit amongst the long list that has been given for robots thinking similarly to humans is the ability for humans and robots to understand each other and therefore sympathize. In a future society robots will likely work and live among us and this shared thinking could make this process much easier.
