Spaun: the Most Complex Simulated Brain Ever
Rebecca Boyle, PopSci
Chris Eliasmith has spent years trying to figure out the ingredients and precise recipe for building a brain. He even has a book coming out in February--called “How to Build A Brain”--describing gray matter, dendritic connections and other brainy anatomy. As he was writing it, it occurred to him that he might want to demonstrate it. So he built Spaun, the most complex simulation of a functioning brain built to date.
