Can We (and Should We) Copy the Brain?
Modeling computers after the brain could revolutionize robotics and big data. Intensive efforts to re-create human cognition will transform the way we work, learn, and play. What are the repercussions of ceding cognition to machines? Are we ready to surrender our principles to algorithms and code? Join us as we explore the ethical and societal implications of brain research and its impact on artificial intelligence advancements.
- Can we build a working copy of the human brain?
- Should we be playing with brain science, machine intelligence, and artificial neural networks?
- What are the social and ethical implications of building machines that think like us?
