Scientists from the Saratov State Technical University named after Yu. A. Gagarin (SSTU), together with their foreign counterparts, have created a neural network that can doubt at the moment of making decisions, – RIA Novosti writes with reference to the journal of the American Institute of Physics.
] Modeling the state of uncertainty of choice at the time the decision was made by the brain, the developers planned to catch a certain state in the overall activity of the brain. It was rather difficult to recognize and describe the uncertainty at the time a person made the decision before.
For this purpose, scientists analyzed the signals of the magnetic-encephalogram – the recording of the magnetic activity of neural ensembles of the brain – by means of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
The brain signals of each volunteer were recorded during a small experiment. People were shown optical illusions. People had to concentrate on the images, then to somehow interpret them. The analysis of the obtained data was carried out by neural networks that learned to recognize and characterize the states of uncertainty of human choice in detail at the moment of brain decision making.
"Moreover, we were able to accurately measure the time period during which a person hesitates and can not make a choice" , – said Professor Alexander Khramov, one of the authors of the study.
Traditional ways to identify such states of brain activity was quite difficult, but using artificial intelligence for this , The researchers were able to achieve success.
education "doubt" the neural network may be useful to scientists to create artificial intelligence that can doubt the correctness of the decision. Before giving a definitive answer, such AI will stop for a moment to think it over. Who knows, maybe in the end, robots from the future will decide not to kill "all people" precisely because of this international scientific work?
