The age of truly intelligent machines is imminent. Modern Neuroscience tells us that, “Minds are simply what brains do”1,2. A race to fully understand intelligence is underway – with billion dollar projects like the EU Human Brain Project and the US BRAIN Initiative coupled with recent breakthroughs in AI algorithms such as Deep Belief Networks leading the charge.
EgoMachines aims to bring together like-minded scientists, engineers and hobbyists who wish to be a part of bringing about the revolution in intelligence through participation in community projects aimed at advancing the state-of-the-art.
