Understanding intelligence -how we may be able to replicate intelligence in machines, and how the brain produces intelligent behavior- is one of the greatest challenges in science and technology.
There are many aspects of human intelligence which have been impossible so far to replicate in...

"MIT researchers and their colleagues have developed a new computational model of the human brain’s face-recognition mechanism that seems to capture aspects of human neurology that previous models have missed.
The researchers designed a machine-learning system that implemented their model, and they trained it to recognize particular faces by feeding it a battery of sample images. They found...
