Already in 1990, musical experiments with analog neural networks have been made. David Tudor, a major figure in the New York experimental music scene, collaborated with Intel to build the very first analog neural synthesizer.
The Free Energy Principle - Neuroscientist Karl Friston on the Markov blanket, Bayesian model evidence, and different global brain theories. How is the brain a statistical model of the world it inhabits?
