    Neuer Algorithmus simuliert strukturelle Plastizität des Gehirns

    Die Frage nach der Verbindung zwischen Neuronen fasziniert Wissenschaftler seit jeher. Während uns Modelle dabei helfen diese Verbindungen nachzuvollziehen, reichen sie oftmals nicht aus, um Millionen von Neuronen eines echten Gehirns zu simulieren. Dieses Problem möchte Informatiker Dr. Sebastian Rinke vom Fachgebiet Parallele Programmierung an der TU Darmstadt mit einem von ihm entwickelten Algorithmus lösen.

    TU Darmstadt: Centre for Cognitive Science presents study about Artificial Intelligence

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) translates documents, suggests treatments for patients, makes purchasing decisions and optimizes workflows. But where is its moral compass? A study by the Centre for Cognitive Science at TU Darmstadt shows that AI machines can indeed learn a moral compass from humans. The results of the study have been presented at this year’s ACM/AAAI Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society (AIES).
