Recent progress in both AI research and neuroscience open novel synergies for advancing both fields. Recent studies have shown that biologically realistic structures such as neural representations of navigation appear spontaneously during supervised learning of navigational tasks in artificial neural networks.

The last decade has seen an explosive development in the application of artificial intelligence (AI), in particular deep networks. Convolutional neural networks (CNNs) now outperform humans on many visual classification tasks.  AI has clearly been inspired by the functioning of real brains, but AI may also help in unraveling how ‘biological intelligence’, that is, real brains work.
