Constructive cortical computation


Constructive cortical computation

During the past century ever more sophisticated methods have been
developed for constructing and programming computing and manufacturing
machines. However, these methods are essentially forward
processes that depend on intelligent human designers and programmers.
They stand in stark contrast to Biology's methods of
self-construction used to evoke the flexible information processor
that is the mammalian neocortex. Understanding this radically different
approach that uses algorithmic self-programming and
construction could have enormous consequences for future computing
and manufacturing technologies. In this talk we describe
progress towards understanding these principles through detailed
simulation of the development of the neocortex.
