IBM Will Be Able To Simulate The Human Brain By The End of The Decade

IBM Will Be Able To Simulate The Human Brain By The End of The Decade

If the global economy and the Kardashians didn’t make humanity seem worthless enough, IBM has announced that by 2019, its “Blue Gene” project will be able to replicate the human brain and all of its 200 trillion synapses via a bunch of processors. And so, the robot apocalypse can commence.

Thus far, Blue Gene has replicated 4.5 percent of the human brain using the same amount of processors, 147,456, as the simulation of an entire cat brain completed back in 2009. We’re more sophisticated, you see.
