Ever think about the movie eagle and how the computer can think like a human? Do you wonder how close we really are to this technology? Well we have made another step closer to this goal. Henry Markram and his team have been dumping data into a supercomputer the size of four vending machines. in this machine all the microchips are connected to each other simulating around 10,000 neurons just like the human brain. The project Blue Brain was awarded a grant of 1.3 billion dollars and given ten years to research and perfect this science. its gonna help considering the super computer costs 10 million.
To me this technology it crazy. I'm an engineering student and know how hard programing can be i can only imagine the process for this computer. But its cool to think think that this technology could help us understand how the mind works. It also scares me to think what this information could be used for.
