New research has found that the brain is directly connected to the immune system by vessels previously thought not to exist. The finding means the textbooks will have to be rewritten.  

Comparing brain vs deep learning and the computational complexity of these processes

August 3rd, 2015 at 8:30 pm » Comments Off

Tim Dettmers: In this blog post I will delve into the brain and explain its basic information processing machinery and compare it to deep learning. I do this by moving step-by-step along with the brains electrochemical and biological information processing pipeline and relating it directly to the architecture of convolutional nets. Thereby we will see that […]

Digital tattoo for controlling devices with your mind

May 7th, 2015 at 1:26 pm » Comments Off

For around $120, anyone can can buy a headset that reads the electrical activity of their brain. It’s called an electroencephalogram, or EEG, a devise that reads the electrical activity of their brain, and you can use it to control devices with the power of your mind.  But there are some drawbacks:  they don’t work when the wearer is […]
