Dissecting Artificial Intelligence to Know More about Human Brain!!

Artificial Intelligence

In the natural world, applied intelligence takes many forms. For instance, bats use echo-location to navigate in the dark, while snakes utilize their heat-sensing ability to hunt down prey. In the computer science world too, many forms of artificial intelligence are to be found, where diverse networks perform different tasks. Cognitive scientists, for instance, are currently using some of the newly developed networks to know more about one of the most complex intelligence system – the human brain.

“The fundamental questions cognitive neuroscientists and computer scientists seek to answer are similar,” says Aude Oliva of MIT. “They have a complex system made of components — for one, it’s called neurons and for the other, it’s called units — and we are doing experiments to try to determine what those components calculate.”

According to Oliva, neuroscientists are learning […]

RIP(Ace scientist Stephen Hawking breathed his last on March 14, 2018: This post is in tribute to his memory)

Professor Stephen Hawking

Unbelievable, yet true, H.G. Well’s “The Time Machine” is still considered as one of the most striking Science Fiction novel ever written by anyone. “I’ve had a most amazing time….”So begins the Time Traveller’s astonishing firsthand account of his journey 800,000 years beyond his own era, along with the story that launched the author’s successful career, earning him reputation as the father of science fiction.

Who is Pushing Whom ? Facebook Vs Onavo VPN

This statement itself sounds most controversial as we are yet to assimilate as to who is pushing whom. However, we might as well define the roles played by each of the players and then get back into the details.
