Predictive Vision for Motorcycles

It’s not a matter of if but when I get back on the saddle. With a joint interest in AI and motorcycles, this is a most interesting development to counter the zombie shit-puppetry of many four wheelers. a fusion of Artificial Intelligence (Neural Networks) and Computer Vision designed to seamlessly integrate with the motorcycles, utilizing…

A rhythm generator based on stigmergy

Interesting to see the theoretical inroads stigmergy is now making into the field of music. [t]he idea for this research is to create a new rhythmic generator technology. This system will be capable of generating multiple lines of percussion that sound natural. The synchronization will be self-organising and thus will be governed by a Stigmergic…

How to Build a Digital Brain

Jeff Hawkins interview. Here’s what we do inside Grok: we build this 60,000-neuron neural network that emulates a very small part of one layer of the neocortex. It’s about a thousandth the size of a mouse brain and a millionth the size of a human brain. So: not super-intelligent, but we’re using the principle by…

Neural Correlates of Lyrical Improvisation: An fMRI Study of Freestyle Rap
