Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have a new project: Reverse-engineer the brain. Ultimately, their goal is to “make computers think more like humans.” Now, their five-year research edffort has been funded by the U.S. Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) for $12 million.
The research effort, through IARPA’s Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks (MICrONS) research program, is part of the U.S. BRAIN Initiative to revolutionize the understanding of the human brain. It’s being led by Tai Sing Lee, a professor in the Computer Science Department and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition.
