What is AI and will it take over the world?We humans have approximately 100 billion neurons in the brain, which contains a lot of information and processing power for a computer to try to emulate.

So, with this in mind, how does AI work? Just how close are we to creating sentient or human-like computers, or even bionic body parts?

In this episode we speak to Geoff Goodhill, a professor at both The University of Queensland’s School of Mathematics and Physics and the Queensland Brain Institute.

He’s an expert in computational neuroscience and is trying to understand the neural code – how information is represented in the brain. He explains how insights from neuroscience are leading to new innovations in artificial intelligence.
