The brain is such complex organ that we are not even close to fully understanding how it works and regulates the rest of the body. Current AI development is focused on perhaps the easiest of brain functions: learning, communication, memory, and sensing.

“SLAM (simultaneous localization and mapping) is a sub-branch of AI. While AI is playing the role for cerebrum and radar for human vision, SLAM is fulfilling the task of the cerebellum, enabling robots to move fluidly, stay balanced, and be proprioceptive,” he said.
