The physicists from Emory University managed to change a mouse brain into a predictive model that can perform like a robot brain. It may even be able to predict the stock market. The activities in a mouse brain are complex. The neurons in the brain will constantly remain in balance between chaos and order by predicting what will happen next by analysing the environment and external factors. The physicists hypothesised the brain and its neural networks and made it function under the same balanced state. Then, they did a lot of tests to see how the brain works and collect the data. They create a simplified model using the brain data as a target and use the model to predict neuron interactions. The result shows accuracy.
The research shows that a mouse brain works in a predictive way. If we can reduce the mouse brain’s activity to a simple model, it can operate in the same way as a predictive AI model. Also, If we can apply the technique to deep learning solutions, we could have a model that is more close to living things.
