My journey into AI/ML/DL and other areas of interest.

Do The Digital Worm πŸ›

Step 1: recreate the brain of the C. elegans worm as a neural network 🧠

Step 2: ask it to park a car πŸš—

Researchers digitized the worm brain, the only fully mapped brain we have, with a 12 neuron network. The goal of this exercise was to create a neural network that humans can understand and parse since the organic version it is based on is well understood. πŸ—Ί

An interesting realization that came out of this exercise: πŸ‘‡

Curiously, both the AI model and the realΒ C. elegansΒ neural circuit contained two neurons that seemed to be acting antagonistically, he saidβ€”when one was highly active, the other wasn’t.

I wonder when this switching neuron feature will be rolled into an AI/ML/DL architecture. πŸ€”
