sweet new brain science

Discussion in 'useless chatter' started by crazymike, Oct 25, 2004.

  1. This biomedical engineer has cultured an array of brain cells from a rat and connected them to a computer.

    He then monitored the neural network and trained it to fly a simulated air craft via a flight sim.

    So basicaly you have primitiv actual working biological AI.

    Although in it's infancy, it seems like quite the breakthrough to me.
  2. When they can teach them to fetch me beers Ill be impressed
  3. How did he train it? :wtf:

  4. flying piece of cheese on the screen.
  5. havent they had a petri dish of rat brain drawing things with markers for like, 2 years now?

    edit: i dont knwo if it was grown or just transplanted though...
  6. that is god awful and i hate you


    edit: oops, this was supposed to be for the thread about april's lingerie
