Brain 2 AI : Forward engineering the brain’s ability to learn

Our research aims to understand how cognitive control is implemented in the human brain ("AI2Brain"), thereby designing brain-inspired artificial intelligent systems that show a high level of ability to perform a wide range of tasks ("Brain2AI").

We focus on demonstrating the applicability of neuroscience for designing better AI, based on the theory that one of the key functions of human prefrontal cortex is to allocate behavioral control to the brain’s subsystems, placing it as the “prefrontal meta-controller”. A detailed insight into these issues not only permits advances in AI, but also helps us understand the nature of human intelligence on a deeper level.
