An Algorithmic and Social Introduction to Computer Science (CSC-105 2000S)


Class 37: Neural Networks

Overview

Today we consider a very different approach toward artificial intelligence: neural networks, which attempt to simulate the way we think.

Question 37 for discussion in today's class: Neural networks take a different approach to artificial intelligence. Rather than trying to mimic the way we think we think, they try to mimic physical aspects of the brain. Do you expect this to be a fruitful road to AI? Why or why not?

Question 38 for disucssion in Tuesday's class: How might you use genetic algorithms to produce a form of intelligent program? Do you expect this to be a fruitful road to AI?
