AI to Mimic the Brain’s Prefrontal Cortex for Learning

Posted by Peter Rudin on 22. January 2021 in News

The biological brain has served as an inspiration for AI-machine-learning designs, such as artificial neural networks used for deep learning. Now AI is being deployed as a tool to help unravel how the brain works.

For example, how and why is the brain capable of adaptive lifelong learning? The precise neural mechanisms on how the brain achieves this has not been entirely clear.

In a recent neuroscience study, researchers from the Salk Institute and the University of Massachusetts Amherst created AI machine-learning model to provide new insights on how the brain’s prefrontal cortex operates when it comes to lifelong learning.
