Studies show that computer models called neural networks behave strikingly similar to actual brains when performing certain tasks, suggesting the two may learn in the same way.

Nima Dehghani‘s insight:

I find this view more on the line of the AI…perhaps the ample computational power will lead to a second rise of AI-type trajectory, mindset and claims…though this time with better achievements. Yet still, it is not surprising that biological and artificial intelligence have lived in separate universes. And they will continue to do so until we see an emergence of biologically-inspired intelligent systems. Even then, it would be playing a trick on ourselves saying that the "smarter machines learn like us", instead of saying "we better design smarter machines that do what we do".
