Techerous

My name is Bill, I am a recent graduate in Information Sciences and Technology from Penn State University and this is a place for me to post or give my 2 cents on the fascinating world of technology. I am now working for a pretty big technology related company whose name I will leave out just to avoid any possible complications, however far-fetched them happening may be. Music gets included from time to time as well.

Obama Proposes $100M for Brain Mapping Project

“While current brain-scanning technologies can reveal the average activity of large populations of brain cells, the new project is aimed at tracking activity down to the individual cell and the tiny details of cell connections. It’s ‘an entirely different scale,’ and one that can pay off someday in treatments for a long list of neurological and psychiatric disorders including schizophrenia, Parkinson’s, depression, epilepsy and autism.”

Even Computers Love Cats of the Day: 16,000 linked Google computers, 10 million random YouTube thumbnail images, and over a billion connections in between led to one result: the computers, without human guidance, learned what a cat is.
Google’s attempt of simulating the human brain, with thousands of processors in conjunction with thinking software, discovered the house cat. It’s a huge step forward in computing, and the best part is…it’s learning.

Same story I posted a couple of days ago, but this one has a picture of a cat, let’s see how it does now!

"Presented with 10 million digital images found in YouTube videos, what did Google’s brain do? What millions of humans do with YouTube: looked for cats."

Even artificial intelligence loves looking up cats
