Garry Schulz's curator insight, December 18, 2012 5:11 AM

The very notion of computers that simulate the human brain seems like pure science fiction.  The reality however is that progress across disciplines such as neuroscience, artificial intelligence (particularly neural networks) and neural computer chip design is both accelerating and converging.  As a result the likelihood of this type of technology emerging in the next 10 to 20 years is much greater than most people appreciate.  


It's also important to understand that the quest to build this technology isn't a fringe play.  It is being pursued by some of the brightest minds on the planet, at some of our most prestigious universities and by some of our largest, most accomplished and most well-resourced corporations (e.g. IBM).  


Some observations:


  • If IBM and others are successful in this pursuit, it will radically transform a number of industries built on a deep seated belief that only humans can perform the key value adding activities in the industry
  • Even if IBM and others are only partially successful, the technology will still have a massive impact on a range of industries 
  • While it might take 20 years for IBM and others to reach their ultimate goal, you can expect them to make progress along the way and for the early impacts of that progress to be felt long before the final goal is achieved.
  • History shows that industry incumbents tend to either be dismissive of or completely miss trends with momentum such as this until it's too late
Swahn Frayé's curator insight, March 5, 2013 1:07 AM

I suggest viewing as a plus to this article this interesting video made by Vsauce about consciousness.
Indeed inspiring ourselves of the human brain to create Artificial Intelligence rises up the question : Will A.I become aware of itself and so reach consciousness? or maybe it will be limited to  a "philosophical zombie" as described in the video
