Can a neuroscientist understand a virtual rodent? Authors took a realistic 3D animal, trained deep RL to control it during tasks, and then used neuroscience techniques to peak inside this animal... [Josh Merel, Diego Aldorando, Greg Wayne, @BOlveczky]

I would actually like to see a 302-neuron version of this (I can't find out how many units are in this architecture, but I assume fewer). Could a neuroscientist understand a 302-neuron artificial C. elegans?

Happy to share this work! We built a model of a rodent, trained it to solve four tasks, and used methods common in neuroscience to study how the rodent controls its body. @Jessedmarshall, Josh Merel, Yuval Tassa, Greg Wayne and @BOlveczky

We are probably months from robopsychology as a field. I'm not really sure if it's "months until" or "months since", to be quite honest.
