UAB has received a BRAIN Initiative grant of $7.3 million from NIH to study new technology that could improve outcomes from deep brain stimulation. UAB investigators will assess next-generation DBS technology which can direct current in specific directions in the brain, allowing for a more tailored approach to DBS.
Google has tweaked its “deep learning” AI to use an external memory bank. It’s an attempt to replicate the way human brains use short term memory to simplify reasoning. The company demonstrated the approach by having the system teach itself the London Underground (subway) map and figure out the quickest route between stops. Show More Summary
