What qualifies as neuroAI? A typology.
On the horizontal axis, we have the researcher’s application area: AI (left) or neuroscience (right). Usually, papers import ideas from an outside field to their home field. Does the research want to bring understanding about how to the brain works, or does the research aim to make AI better?
On the vertical axis, one defines whether one is motivated by applications (e.g. conventional engineering applications) at the top vs. curiosity driven at the bottom.
