Rat Brain Flies Jet

Uh. Seriously. They took neurons from a rat brain, suspended it in some crazy liquid and hooked it up and got it flying an F-22 simulation. Bizarre. The odd thing is that I recently completed reading Jeff Hawkins’ “On Intelligence” where he points out that neural network (or connectivist) approaches to machine intelligence haven’t come too far in too long. I guess there’s no accounting for the time lag in paper publishing.
