Cape Town – A new scientific endeavor hopes to unravel some of the mysteries surrounding the human brain by creating a highly detailed simulation of it.
Researchers will use a supercomputer to build a working replica of our minds.
With $1.6bn in funding and more than 200 researchers, the Human Brain Project is the largest, most ambitious cooperative experiment of its kind.
Serious hardware is necessary for a project of this kind, to pack the simulation into a single computer would require a system 1 000 times more powerful than today’s supercomputers.
