Research Center for Brain-inspired Intelligence
Institute of Automation, Chinese Academy of Sciences
Current research directions of the Research Center for Brain-inspired Intelligence include but are not limited to:
Linked Brain Data (LBD) is an effort for extracting, integrating, linking and analyzing multi-modal Brain and Neuroscience data and knowledge from multiple scales and multiple data sources (mainly from Web-accessible resources). It provides services for Brain and neuroscience knowledge extraction, structured
data representation, integration, visualization, analysis, semantic search and reasoning. LBD is proud to present the association graph on various cognitive functions, brain diseases and their relationships to brain building blocks at multiple scales. In addition, LBD not only contains textual knowledge about the brain, but also provide visualized structures of brain building blocks at multiple scales.
Brain-inspired Cognitive Intelligence Engine (BrainCog) is a brain-inspired neural network based platform for realizing Brain-inspired Artificial Intelligence, and simulating the cognitive brains of different animal species at multiple scales. The ultimate goal and long term efforts of BrainCog is to provide a comprehensive theory and systems to decode the mechanisms and principles of human intelligence and its evolution, and develop artificial brains for brain-inspired conscious living becomings for the future human-AI symbiotic society.
BORN is an Artificial Intelligence Engine based on Brain-inspired Spiking Neural Networks. The ultimate vision of BORN is to achieve living Artificial General Intelligence, as a new type of evolutionary becoming, and as a moral member of the future symbiotic society. The near term goal of BORN is a self enabled learning AI powered by spiking neural networks that can coordinate various cognitive functions in a self organized way to solve complex problems. BORN is powered by BrainCog, the Brain-inspired Cognitive Intelligence Engine.
