The potential of biologically inspired neural modeling with neurorobotics expert, Jeffrey Krichmar

- Jeff Krichmar, cog sci, On Consciousness with Bernard Baars, April 1, 2020
In this episode of "On Consciousness," neuroscientists Bernie Baars, Jeff Krichmar, and David Edelman engage in a freewheeling conversation that begins with mulling over the possible development of conscious machines--or ‘conscious artifact,’ as Gerald Edelman put it--sometime in the not-so-distant future.
We unpack the various ‘bumps in the road’ in the quest to build intelligent, sentient machines--the problems of efficiency (with regard to energy utilization, brains run circles around any present-day computers) and dissipation of heat in increasingly miniaturized microcircuitry, among others.
