Steve Potter on neuroscience and AI

Dr Steve Potter
Prof. Steve Potter works at the Laboratory of Neuroengineering in Atlanta, Georgia. I wrote to him after coming across his old article, 'What can AI get from Neuroscience?' I wanted to know how neuroscience might contribute to AI in the future: for instance will 'reverse engineering the brain' be a substantial contributor of software for general AI? To shed light on this, I talked to Prof. Potter about how neuroscience has helped AI in the past, how the fields interact now, and what he expects in the future. Summary notes on the conversation are here.
