Makes a great deal of sense to me, but it's not the people on this list
that need convincing, and I'm the wrong Ben. I had an exchange years ago
with a more relevant Ben (Goertzel) about the relevance of modelling
existing brains to AI research, but he wasn't a fan, and thought a more
direct computational approach was the way to go, bypassing biological
brains altogether. Maybe he, or other AI researchers can be persuaded
