Interesting, although it is limited, as mentioned, that it cannot create new connections just work with what it has, and that is only a few hundred thousand connections, the human brain has millions or even billions of connections. The technology isn't there yet but this is a step in the correct direction.

One step closer to AM, especially with DARPA involved.

Thumbs up for this one in the article:
Quote:
However, Dr Mark Bishop, professor of cognitive computing at Goldsmiths, was more cautious.

"[I] understand cognition to be something over and above a process simulated by the execution of mere computations, [and] see such claims as verging on the magical," he said.

Its only magic if you choose to bask in ignorance.

The Blue Brain Project is underway and is the next step after IBM. They are trying to create a functional human brain inside of a computer: Blue Brain Project - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And that's really cool

Is it even possible to bask in ignorance, seeing as ignorance is the absence of knowledge, so how does one bask in lack of something?

Waiting anxiously for that rat brain. So much to look forward to in 2014

Curling up and refusing to accept knowledge out of fear or stubbornness, like our friend Aurora here.

I know you two don't really get along, but isn't that assuming tad much?

Aurora is idealistic and perhaps somewhat naive, but I wouldn't say that she actively refuses to acknowledge that which is true. Then again I'm not really any good when it comes to judge of character.

Yeah, I agree with Aquaplant... I mean, there was a time where you were at least intelligent when you blatantly personally insulted other people. Now, you're not even making that effort.
