Nature has produced life, the brain, and intelligence. However, science and nature are vastly different forces. The human brain is like a powerful computer that stores our memory and controls how we as humans think and react. It has evolved over time and features some incredibly intricate parts that scientists still struggle to understand. For decades computer scientists have been trying to build machines that can calculate faster than the human brain and store more information.
The brain is a deviously complex biological computing device that even the fastest supercomputers in the world fail to emulate. Well, that’s not entirely true anymore. Researchers from Japan and Germany have managed to simulate a single second of human brain activity on a very, very powerful computer in 2013. It took 40 minutes with the combineRead More
