A new computer algorithm developed by Professor Parham Aarabi (ECE) can store and recall information strategically, just like our brains do.

Aarabi has also created an experimental tool that leverages the new algorithm to help people with memory loss. His framework is explored in a paper presented next week at the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society Conference in Glasgow, Scotland.

“Most people think of AI as more robot than human,” says Aarabi
