Human Brain vs Artificial Intelligence Concept

Can the brain, limited in its ability to perform precise math, compete with AI systems run on high-speed parallel computers? Yes, for many tasks, as evidenced by everyday experiences. Given this, can a more efficient AI be built based on the brain’s design?

Although the brain’s architecture is very shallow, brain-inspired artificial neural networks’ learning capabilities can outperform deep learning.

Traditionally, artificial intelligence stems from human brain dynamics. However, brain learning is restricted in a number of significant aspects compared to deep learning (DL). First, efficient DL wiring structures (architectures) consist of many tens of feedforward (consecutive) layers, whereas brain dynamics consist of only a few feedforward layers. Second, DL architectures typically consist of many consecutive filter layers, which are essential to identify one of the input classes. If the input is a car, for example, the first filter identifies wheels, the second one identifies doors, the third one lights and after many additional filters it becomes clear that the input object is, indeed, a car. Conversely, brain dynamics contain just a single filter located close to the retina. The last necessary component is the mathematical complex DL training procedure, which is evidently far beyond biological realization.

Can the brain, with its limited realization of precise mathematical operations, compete with advanced artificial intelligence systems implemented on fast and parallel computers? From our daily experience we know that for many tasks the answer is yes! Why is this and, given this affirmative answer, can one build a new type of efficient artificial intelligence inspired by the brain? In an article published today (January 30) in the journal

“Highly pruned tree architectures represent a step toward a plausible biological realization of efficient dendritic tree learning by a single or several neurons, with reduced complexity and energy consumption, and biological realization of backpropagation mechanism, which is currently the central technique in AI,” added Yuval Meir, a PhD student and contributor to this work.

Efficient dendritic tree learning is based on previous research by Kanter and his experimental research team — and conducted by Dr. Roni Vardi — indicating evidence for sub-dendritic adaptation using neuronal cultures, together with other anisotropic properties of neurons, like different spike waveforms, refractory periods and maximal transmission rates.

The efficient implementation of highly pruned tree training requires a new type of hardware that differs from emerging GPUs that are better fitted to the current DL strategy. The emergence of new hardware is required to efficiently imitate brain dynamics.
