Films like Ex Machina, AI, and Transcendence revolve around artificial intelligence, and recreating the human brain in electronic form. The question is – can we do such a thing?
Simon Clark is a fourth year PhD candidate at the University of Exeter. To film this video, he visited the neuroscience lab at UCL, and worked with Dr Ali Jennings, who has just started an exciting new project to communicate research called Collab Lab .
We look at the electrical circuits that are active in the brain, take a look at the electrical activity generated by a lone neuron in lab, look at networks of neurons, and finally examine the differences between biological and electronic circuits.
