Bengaluru Tech Summit : Day 2

There was an interesting experiment on a patient, who daily forgets her past life. Everyday, she introduce herself, shake hands like meeting for the first time. The scientist doctor, started hurting her with small pin, during shake hand. Just in few days, she stopped shake hands with the scientist, even though she could not recover any memory associated about him. There are many research on topics of fear, fact, emotions, memory etc. 

Brain Research in the age of information technology

As per Moravec's paradox, what we human beings find very easy is difficult for computers and what is easy for computers, that we find the most difficult. Like computer compare two images, pixel by pixel and so it cannot identify two objects are same, if the images are from different angle. On other way, two images of up-side-down faces, we human beings find identical, but when we rotate 180 degree, we realize they are different. It is easy for computer to tell, that they are different, as it compare pixel by pixel. Today 80 % of object detection is done by AI/ML.The 40% of our brain are is involved in visual processing. The brains does not look at brightness of pixel. We also discussed about famous image, about a dress, where a group people says white and blue, while others say gold and black. The color depends on individual perception about color of light falling on that dress white or yellow. Symmetry in deep learning network, increases accuracy from 1 to 10 %. Few initiatives:
