Generative AI helps to explain human memory and imagination

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Recent advances in generative AI help to explain how memories enable us to learn about the world, relive old experiences and construct totally new experiences for imagination and planning, according to a new study by UCL researchers.

The study, published in Nature Human Behaviour, uses an AI —known as a generative neural network—to simulate how in the brain learn from and remember a series of events (each one represented by a simple ).

The model featured networks representing the hippocampus and neocortex, to investigate how they interact. Both parts of the brain are known to work together during , imagination and planning.
