Harvard Professor, “We are Building Artificial Brains and Uploading Minds to Cloud right now”

David Cox, Assistant Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology and Computer Science at Harvard, explains how his lab is working with others to reverse engineer how brains learn, starting with rats. The fast-advancing fields of neuroscience and computer science are on a collision course. By shedding light on what our machine learning algorithms are currently missing, this work promises to improve the capabilities of robots – with implications for jobs, laws and ethics.
