TEDxCHUV - Henry Markram - Understanding the Human Brain: A test of global collaboration
Interesting talk - The Human Brain Project is pretty cool, an effort to integrate everything known about the brain into computer models and use those models tosimulate the actual working of the brain. Partly, they want to develop AI, and partly they want to find gaps in our knowledge where more research is needed.
Ultimately, it will attempt to simulate the complete human brain. The models built by the project will cover all the different levels of brain organisation from individual neurons through to the complete cortex. The goal is to bring about a revolution in neuroscience and medicine and to derive new information technologies directly from the architecture of the brain.... [via Integral Options Cafe]
The challenges facing the project are huge. Neuroscience alone produces more than 60'000 scientific papers
