Boosting Neurosciences, Revolutionizing Computer Sciences !
“Understanding the human brain is one of the greatest challenges facing 21st century science. If we can rise to the challenge, we can gain profound insights into what makes us human, develop new treatments for brain diseases and build revolutionary new computing technologies” from www.humanbrainproject.eu
The “Human Brain Project“, a 1.16 billion € flagship scientific project (more than 100 million € annually for 10 years) recently funded by the European Union. A giant leap into…”big science”, at the interface of Neurosciences and Information & Computer Technologies (ICT). In brief, HGP will “simulate a complete human brain into a supercomputer”.
