Eye-Tracking, the Human Brain and Artificial Intelligence
We first became enamoured by Aldo, who is a lecturer in Neurotechnology at Imperial College London, after he spoke at IQ2′s If Conference about the revolutionary new eye-tracking technology he has pioneered. This technology, recently featured in Wired Magazine is a real game-changer as it can be built on a shoestring budget for a mere £30, whereas similar equipment has typically cost many thousands.
But we delved far beyond Aldo’s current project to discuss… well, everything!
Listen to the podcast above to learn about how our brains are structured and how they compare to computers. Did you know their brilliance is down to their “literally crappy” design? We also talked about the tedium of the banking industry and the competitiveness of the academic circuit before heading into a discussion about Artificial Intelligence.
After you finish this, I guarantee you will be at least 10% smarter.
Editor’s Prompt: “The brain’s components are basically cheap crap.” Does this notion offend you or fill you with wonder?
