DeepMind has trained an AI to unlock the mysteries of your brain
They can beat any human at the Chinese game ‘Go’ without any human help, and match thousands of faces on photographs in just seconds, but until now algorithms have not mastered something that might seem one of the simplest tasks: spatial awareness.
Researchers at DeepMind, owned by Google parent company Alphabet, have managed to mimic the complex way our brains navigate the spaces around us using artificial intelligence. And it’s helping us to understand brains in a way we couldn’t before.
While it seems like second nature, what goes on in your brain when you walk down a familiar street – for example, navigating past obstacles, remembering shops and deciding when to cross the road or how to take a shortcut – is surprisingly complex.
