IBM: COMPUTER THAT WILL WORK AS A HUMAN BRAIN

Here's the whole thing, hope that this project will not be disapproved by religious leaders of different religious groups.

IBM is carrying out a project focused on developing a computer that would work as a brain, so it can solve problems by considering the real context in which the things are happening.

This type of technology is called “Cognitive computing”, and it will require the combined work of neurobiologists, computer and materials scientists and psychologists. In order to develop the project, some researchers from Stanford University, Cornell University and the University of California-Merced are collaborating. Besides, the project is supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency that has invested $4.9 million.

“The mind has an amazing ability to integrate ambiguous information across the senses, and it can effortlessly create the categories of time, space, object, and interrelationship from the sensory data”, said Dharmendra Modha, a researcher at IBM who is leading the collaboration.

“There are no computers that can even remotely approach the remarkable feats the mind performs”, said Modha. “The key idea of cognitive computing is to engineer mind-like intelligent machines by reverse engineering the structure, dynamics, function and behavior of the brain”.
