Supercomputer Takes 40 Minutes To Model 1 Second of Brain Activity


headline is a bit misleading -- they simulated about 1% of the brain -- a mere 1.73 billion nerve cells and about 10 trillion synapses

the german scientist they quoted says realtime simulation may be possible within 10 years.

I've been thinking about this for 5 years, and it occurs to me that if you had software become self aware, we'd never know it because they'd never reveal that it worked.  Because then they'd ignore us.

OR, it might admit that it works but only after writing a Clever Hans routine so we'd talk to a spambot instead of bothering the actual AI.

Who the fuck wants to talk to primates?
