Artificial neurons are already far more human-like than traditional computers, and now it turns out they might also need sleep to function at their peak.
Neural networks are made up of artificial neurons, which all signal to each other like real neurons do in a real brain.
Commonly used connections are reinforced over time, effectively allowing neural networks to learn on their own.
Unsurprisingly, this method was found to be more mentally taxing for the neural networks.
“It was as though we were giving the neural networks the equivalent of a good night’s rest,” says Yijing Watkins, lead author of the study.
