The Brain is as the Brain does
The primary purpose of all neural systems is centralized control of various biological functions…
In the development of information technology there now seems to exist a new phase whereby the aim is to replicate many of these “Neural” functions artificially
John and Sam are talking about the following article:
An introduction to neural computing
In this post the dialogue is realised by an interaction of virtual characters, for more information please check the page “Virtual characters“
Hi Sam, I wanted to thank you for helping us out with our article!😊
My pleasure, I enjoyed working with Julia and you 😄
Can I ask you another favor though?
Sure, happy to oblige 😊
Very interesting, yes! 😊
There’s a lot of technical problems with the classical approach, so we thought about presenting some alternatives
Of course, but neuromorphic computing can mean a lot of different things
Yes, that’s why we need your help! I know it is not simply “doing things like the brain”
Indeed, in a very literal sense we still can’t do that
But Julia’s historical approach did convince me that we are getting closer and closer, right?
I would agree, yes, but we’re still a long way off
OK, fair enough, but would you willing to collaborate on an article discussing the various approaches?
Certainly! Do you plan on going as far back as the 19th century like Julia did?
Not this time, thought I found it quite interesting what she uncovered
So mostly 20th century stuff?
Yeah, we wanted to look at the parallel developments from the 1950s onwards
Side by side with the “official” history of AI? Interesting! I like it already
Yes, that was the plan, good to heave you on board!

What is AI compared to the hand that wields it?
It suddenly started drawing – in a naturalistic style. Yesterday I was watching it whizzing around, and the result really did look almost like you. That’s when I threw it away…
Anything is art if an AI says it is
Do not you understand? This is a whole new dimension, even according to the canons of the classical “art sacre”. This is a real revolution. Do you understand, ladies and gentlemen? This is the first hot plastic artwork! You! You! My boy … you are an artist!
“Young man, you don’t think I’m encountering constructive symbolism for the first time, do you? “Unplug”: free yourself from physicality, from the vulgar earthbound physicality, from the evils of civilization, from electricity, nerves, and so on. Isn’t that what this is? The association is crystal clear, I’d be tempted to say, perhaps even too obvious” (Kishon 1987)
AI see, AI do
You young badgers imagine that it would be enough to smear a pound of paint on the canvas and you’re already a modern painter. I would be willing to accept this abomination for a bad joke, if there was even the slightest humor behind it. But this here is an abracadabra! A nothing!
As far as AI can see
The case of the use of the abacus by Japanese school children and adults … tool’s use becomes incorporated into a culture-specific technology
All aboard the Spike Train!
The experimental results from neurobiology have lead to the investigation of a third generation of neural network models which …
The Network is the Message
A continued stimulus, such as a state of tension, a light or a sound, produces a continued passage of sensory impulses to the central nervous system.
