Launched Missions

  • This research mission broadly aims to understand how children grasp new concepts from few examples, how children build upon layers of concepts to reach an understanding of the world and have the flexibility to solve an unbounded range of problems. Can we build AI that starts like a baby and learns like a child?
  • This research mission broadly addresses how we perceive the world around us and integrate this information to plan and complete tasks. Scientific goals include research into how perception, planning, and action interface, how we learn efficiently from small data sets and the creation of behavioral benchmark tasks.
  • This research mission looks at electrochemical synapses as building blocks to emulate and advance learning models. What can we learn from biological synapses to build better, more energy-efficient engineered hardware?  Science research goals include modeling the circuits that both underlie complex learned behaviors and begin to emulate and advance state of the art learning rules.
