TransVision 2010 Presentation by Randal A. Koene
I am a 25 Watt bio-computer. What are the hacks that make us who we are?
Many of us would like to transfer the mind to a machine, or we would like to create general machine intelligence.
I will discuss several of the mechanisms that implement some of the most significant functions of the mind.
Sensing, acting, learning, our experience in time and intelligent thought, in their general and theoretical form present an immense computational burden.
The neuroscientific insights at the core of the computational models I present reveal to us how our dearest emergent capabilities can be achieved by feasible functions in a 25 Watt bio-computer.
|Randal A. Koene‘s professional background includes computational neuroscience, psychology, information theory, electrical engineering and physics. His research objective is whole brain emulation, creating the large-scale high-resolution representations and emulations of activity in neuronal circuitry that are needed in patient-specific neuroprostheses.|
TransVision 2010 is a global transhumanist conference and community convention. The event will take place on October 22, 23 and 24, 2010 in Milan, Italy with many options for remote online access.
