Simulating the Human Brain with Supercomputers

A fascinating article on IBM’s successes in simulating the human brain using supercomputers is worth reading: The Brain in the Machine: I.B.M’s Compass : The New Yorker

I looked into the Blue Brain Project after catching its mentioning in the above article.

Here is a fascinating video that describes the Blue Brain Project (about 4 minutes long):

The Human Connectome Project is also worth checking out.

My startup is called Kimerick, which encompasses neural network discovery processes, like the processes used in the Blue Brain and Human Connectome projects – maybe that is why all of this is very fascinating to me!Kimerick
