Artificial Brain and OfficeMateTR based on Brain Information Processing Mechanism

  • Soo-Young Lee
Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 63)


The Korean Brain Neuroinformatics Research Program has dual goals, i.e., to understand the information processing mechanism in the brain and to develop intelligent machine based on the mechanism. The basic form of the intelligent machine is called Artificial Brain, which is capable of conducting essential human functions such as vision, auditory, inference, and emergent behavior. By the proactive learning from human and environments the Artificial Brain may develop oneself to become more sophisticated entity. The OfficeMate will be the first demonstration of these intelligent entities, and will help human workers at offices for scheduling, telephone reception, document preparation, etc. The research scopes for the Artificial Brain and OfficeMate are presented with some recent results.
