Grand challenge 5

Grand Challenge 5

  • To increase our understanding of the brain and mind

    • drawing on philosophy, neuroscience, developmental psychology, animal behaviour

    • exploiting CS concepts – architectures, virtual machines, parallel processing, and so on

  • To test our understanding

    • by implementing computer and robot models

  • To design and build ...

    • a robot capable of a range and sophistication of behaviour equivalent (in some sense) to that of an infant

Cognitive Architecture

White matter pathways

(O’Donnell & Westin)

The global neuronal workspace

(Dehaene, Changeux, et al.)

A computer model of the

global workspace

(Shanahan)

The challenge is to move from concrete neurological reality to abstract computer models


Humanoid robotics

Humanoid Robotics

Various humanoid robot platforms are under development…

iCub

Domo

Cronos


Spinnaker project

SpiNNaker project


Success criteria

Success criteria

  • a robot capable of a range and sophistication of behaviour equivalent to that of an infant

  • an understanding of information processing mechanisms in the brain

    • leading to new therapeutic treatments

  • a novel brain-inspired computer architecture

    • displaying biological levels of fault-resilience, power-efficiency, etc.
