NeuroMentix is working to unleash the power of the brain
Despite more than 50 years of intensive effort in AI,
cognitive science, and related fields, building systems with
the generality, robustness, and rudimentary capabilities of
even the simplest brains is still a dream.
Neuroscience has provided numerous discoveries and
insights about the underpinnings of the brain's remarkable
capabilities, but it has yet to reveal how these
capabilities arise and how the brain operates as a system.
has taken up these challenges. While drawing upon the best of
both the technical and neuroscientific approaches, NeuroMentix is
forging an entirely new path forward. While remaining consistent with
known biology, machine learning techniques, and other common drivers
of brain modeling, NeuroMentix's path taps into an unused source
of knowledge about brain processing. This new source of requirements,
constraints, and inspiration replaces many common assumptions about
control, representation, learning, and autonomous behavior. This path
has led to new hypotheses for the functional roles of various brain
regions and is being used to develop biological models of the brain. It
has also yielded important insights into the computational mechanisms
underlying thought, cognition, learning, and behavior. Together, these
scientific and technical advances are expected to lead to breakthroughs
in autonomous system technology and applied neuroscience.
