Yeah, cool. Its the thing I thought it was. A lot of the ai gurus have backgrounds in "neuroscience" I'm guessing the computational flavour would be like a bridge. I look across it and I see icky, gooey stuff, waiting to pounce on me and I'll place a bet a biology person would look across to this side and see weird mechanical stuff made of robots and numbers.
I heard about some results where simulated results on visual cortex matched the real meat version in some measurable way. That slicing thing you were doing? But I know those meat models are heavy fucking duty compute power, a long way off from use case in any sort of production scenario. The coding equivalent is more high level logic function. What you lack in fidelity, you gain in footprint and scalability.
Intelligence itself is beginning to be clearly understood and described in math. What we're discovering is it can be improved, in machines. Massively. Not personality or intellect, those are fucked up weird shit that nobody seems to be able to work out yet but raw intelligence. They're calling it "artificial" but really it's more a case of "optimised", or "ampliified"
I'm doing what I've been doing since I was a kid - looking for problems and applying computatiinal solutions, only this time I don't need to program it. This will be like cheating for a living.
