Rethinking BICA’s R&D Challenges: Grief Revelations of an Upset Revisionist

Authors: Emanuel Diamant

Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures (BICA) is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence aimed at creating machines that emulate human cognitive abilities. What distinguish BICA from other AI approaches is that it based on principles drawn from biology and neuroscience. There is a widespread conviction that nature has a solution for almost all problems we are faced with today. We have only to pick up the solution and replicate it in our design. However, Nature does not easily give up her secrets. Especially, when it is about human brain deciphering. For that reason, large Brain Research Initiatives have been launched around the world. They will provide us with knowledge about brain workflow activity in neuron assemblies and their interconnections. But what is being “flown” (conveyed) via the interconnections the research programme does not disclose. It is implied that what flows in the interconnections is information. But what is information? – that remains undefined. Having in mind BICA’s interest in the matters, the paper will try to clarify the issues.
