Prevailing over a century, the neuronal paradigm of studying the brain has left us with limitations in both our understanding of how the brain processes information to achieve biological intelligence and how such knowledge can be translated into artificial intelligence. Overturning our assumptions of how the brain functions and dysfunctions, the recent exploration of astrocytes, the most abundant yet long-neglected non-neuronal brain cells, has ignited a revolution in our fundamental understanding of how information is processed, transferred and learned in the brain knot. In this talk, I will present the first fruits of our effort to harness and nurture the computational power of astrocytes and unleash it into brain-mimetic Robotics.
