What if we leverage our current understanding of brain circuits to explore new ways of building better AI systems? A review paper on the architectures of neuronal circuits suggests opportunities for AI to learn from neuroscience.

Using a simulation, researchers studied how embodiment influences the evolution of AI. “To our knowledge, this is the first simulation to show that what you learn within a lifetime can be sped up just by changing your morphology," says HAI's @SuryaGanguli.
