Dale Purves, Duke Neuroscientist, Part 1: Practice, Practice, Practice – The Makings of Artificial Intelligence

As a neuroscientist for decades, Dale has studied the human brain. Now he has directed what he knows about the human brain to artificial intelligence and machine learning – or, put differently, to the computer brain. Tackling questions about theoretical neuroscience (how the brain does what it does), consciousness (which he thinks is replicable in machines), and perception (what we see may not be reality), Dale offers fascinating insights into both human behavior and machine behavior and how they are linked through the adage of “practice makes perfect.”
