+ - Spaun: A large-scale functional brain model->

Submitted by

dj_tla writes "A team of Canadian researchers have created a state-of-the-art brain model that can see, remember, think about, and write numbers. The model has just been discussed in a Science article entitled "A Large-Scale Model of the Functioning Brain". There have been several popular press articles, and there are videos of the model in action.

Nature quotes Eugene Izhikevich, chairman of Brain Corporation, as saying, “Until now, the race was who could get a human-sized brain simulation running, regardless of what behaviours and functions such simulation exhibits. From now on, the race is more [about] who can get the most biological functions and animal-like behaviours. So far, Spaun is the winner.”

Full disclosure: I am a member of the team that created Spaun."
