It is an often used method to use research of the human brain to develop AI-applications, but what happens if we turn the perspective around? What if the research is directed on artificial intelligence aiming to better understand the human brain? Aude Oliva of MIT said the following 25th annual meeting of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society (CNS): “The fundamental questions cognitive neuroscientists and computer scientists seek to answer are similar. 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.” As AI can be seen as mini-brains that can be studied, changed, evaluated, compared against responses given by neural networks in the human brain. In this way, cognitive neuroscientists are having a sketch to compare from of how a real brain may function. These neural human brain networks that otherwise can be considered more of a black box.
