Building artificial connectomes


From O’Reilly:

Using animal connectome emulation, unwanted behaviors such as defensive mechanisms, will make it difficult to create robots and applications that are conducive to our desires and needs. For example, one would not want to create a robotic puppy for their child that bites. We would probably more want the robotic puppy to simply shut down and stop playing rather than chew on our children.
