A Computer Architecture Inspired by Neuroscience, with Suggestions for the Design of a Conscious AI

With Manuel Blum, Bruce Nelson University Professor of Computer Science, Carnegie Mellon University. Thanks to major advances in neuroscience, we are on the brink of a scienti c understanding of how the brain achieves consciousness. This talk will describe neuroscientist Bernard Baars’ Global Workspace Model (GWM) of the brain, its implications for understanding consciousness, and a novel computer architecture that it inspires.
