Simulating a human brain


Bluebrain | Year One from Couple 3 Films on Vimeo.

Filmmaker Noah Hutton is working on a documentary chronicling the quest to reverse engineer the human brain and then create a simulation of that brain. The potential for AI, medicine, and philosophy is essentially limitless if these eggheads pull it off, and there’s a good chance they will. Once the project is successfully completed, the film will also be finished. But the trailer above is as enticing as the possibilities of silicon-based intelligence. (grabbed from Boing Boing).
