Dynamic modes of the sensor signal consciousness in neuron­like models: ways to the «neuromorphic» intellect and problems

Yakhno Vladimir Grigorevich, Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Universal models of neuron-like type, from which the systems of transformation and identification of information signals are constructed in accordance with pre-determined goals are considered. The models of different levels in a model system are aimed at performing functional operations characteristic of live systems. The presented set of base models and the most obvious dynamic modes of their operation can adequately describe the features of conscious perception and response of live systems to various sensor signals. The models with biologically inspired architecture are used for the creation of technical devices (simulators) which permit one to reproduce the main features of the behavior of live systems.
