This is an awesome short video from Wall Street Journal covering some of the progress of the BlueBrain project.
If you get goosebumps thinking about the potential of this project, we’re on the same wavelength 🙂
Meet Blue Brain, a “brain” made up entirely of silicon and housed inside an IBM supercomputer. An astonishing advance, the artificial brain may be the first step toward manmade higher behavior, WSJ’s Gautam Naik reports.
This is a really exciting area. The rate of progress of this project is crazy, even with a standard level of funding and linear projections. Just imagine what they could be doing in 10 years time with *more* funding and perhaps unforeseen breakthroughs in HPC.
