Publishing/Writing With A Super Human Brain


 

Super Human Brain ?

Super Human Brain ?

Tonight’s post is delving into a little “other life stuff” — remotely related to damn near everything — and, therefore, to publishing/writing :)

Did you realize that the human brain is made up of 100 billion neurons connected by 100,000 billion synapses ?

Wowwee ! We are literally walking around with priceless computers sitting on top of  our shoulders — AND, according to research that will be revealed below, the Human Brain Project will need computers 1000 times more powerful than any existing computers to simulate one human brain ! I’m visualizing future Homo Sapiens just thinking of writing and plots and they will form words/content in some future platform (self-correcting, of course) and will also display scenes from your thought-plot in holograms for you to visualize !!!

Oh, damn, what am I thinking (or dreaming) about ? I better wake up soon! Hmm, could this be a nightmare in disguise ?

Amanda Wills , reporting in Mashable, presents more details that include videos — ENJOY:

Supercomputer Will Simulate the Human Brain

Even in the 21st century, there are still a lot of unsolved mysteries when it comes to the human brain. It is a complicated machine that neuroscientists continually try to understand.

A new scientific endeavor hopes to unravel some of these mysteries by creating a highly detailed simulation of the human brain. Essentially, researchers will use a supercomputer to build a working replica of our minds.With $1.6 billion 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.

The project will officially begin later this year. It will take Europe 10 years to map all of the 100 billion neurons connected by 100,000 billion synapses that make up a human brain.
