DARPA wants to build robots with insect consciousness

DARPANowadays, we use it Artificial Intelligence in our everyday lives, perhaps more than we realize, from Alexa and Siri, to the wide range of "smart" devices we have in our homes, cars, phones and business.

The amount of computational power and training required for artificial intelligence systems is steadily increasing and modeling of AI based on the human brain is a major challenge because of the complex and enormous neural network of the human brain.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the research and development division of the Pentagon, plans to rationalize this process and has recently announced that it is accepting proposals to create a conscientious AI robot designed on the basis of the insect brain.

The aim of the new project is to find a way to build small, easy-to-use, energy efficient robots A1. Insects are an excellent choice to begin this effort, although they have limited processing and problem-solving capabilities, and have high levels of functionality in their environment.

"This opportunity we offer invites those wishing to submit innovative core research concepts to understand integrated sensory and nervous systems in tiny insects and to develop original computer models that could be mapped to the appropriate hardware to mimic their impressive function "Said DARPA.

If DARPA could create an effective Al insect model, it would be easy to incorporate artificial intelligence into a conscious robot who thinks and acts like an insect.

Such a robot would not only be more efficient and would require less computational training but could also help unravel the mysteries of how the brain processes information and stores memory.

"Nature has imposed on these small insects dramatic miniaturization and energy efficiency, some of which have only a few hundred neurons in a compact shape, while maintaining its basic functionality," the DARPA report said. "This research could lead to the ability to draw conclusions, predict, generalize and remove problems in systematic or completely new ways to find solutions to problems."

A 1 million dollar prize will be awarded for the winning proposal if it can successfully prove it can create an AI model of insects.
