Henry Markram, director of the Blue Brain Project, announces his goal to build "a functioning, artificial human brain within the next 10 years." http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10294201-1.html

Interesting. This blog was from 2008 and at that time Markram was saying 2015, or 7 years. One year later, and his estimate is 10 years. With divergence like that, it will never happen. Angel

I think it will happen, I wouldn't bet the farm though.
All kind of crazy stuff goin on though.

By 2020? I think an artificial human brain more believable than a successful manned mission to the moon.

But we'll see what the Powers That Be say.

Who was that guy I watched on youtube recently, he said life exists wherever it can.
I'm still on that "Spontaneous DNA' thing for some reason.
Think Neurons, neurons.

I do believe it will happen and maybe even as soon as 2012, 2020 ... but then "the" program (programmed reality) will just reset itself to a multi-verse where Markman's brain does not work. Whenever people like Markam say all that is stopping them is the need for a bigger and better super computer, then I know it will not be due to any of their input into the mix.

Intelligence is not the machine: it is the program. The program for intelligence must be equally capable of displaying both intelligence as simple as an ant finding its way home to an ant colony, and intelligence yet as complex as the appreciating of art work.

The need for a bigger computer shows that the person is still focused on the computational intelligence rather than the non-probabilistic paradigm for general intelligence (as Goertzel calls it). I call it (real intelligence) cognitive causality. "Cognitive causality" is a program that eludes the problem of infinite probabilities (infinite monkey theorem)

Still missing the spark of consciousness. Until Kurzweil figures out how to upload his into it.
