DARPA wants to build a computer that simulates the human brain





The Agency for Defense Advanced Research Projects USA (or DARPA ) and so overwhelmed with work, but it added to the list of the projects have an interesting task – to build a computer that would have the same features, what has the brain of a mammal.

DARPA wants to build a car that would be based on the structure of the neocortex, that is a big part of the human brain responsible for higher functions, such as motor skills, the ability to speak, sensory, and other parties involved in this action processes. The agency has already applied for the implementation of “Korteksny processor” in which DARPA will collect and analyze data for further development of complex data networks. In other words, they want to build an artificial human brain that would have the ability to be aware of the time and the space around them “to solve highly complex problems in real time.”

“A computerized model of the cortex must be able to cope in standalone mode with missing data for the solution of its tasks, use a massively parallel architecture to be energy efficient, flexible in terms of modernization and have at least a minimum of arithmetic abilities exact calculations”, – stated in the application.

Why DARPA artificial intelligence? While this question is still unclear, and the agency may not be fully confident in the set ourselves the same problems, so it made a proposal to the application developers to come up with options for the use of such a system.

It is worth noting that the development of similar systems, it has been doing for years. The largest in this regard is the project SyNAPSE (Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics), which is divided into several phases, with the ultimate aim of which is to create a hardware and software prototype of the brain. By the way the third phase of the project was funded by DARPA SyNAPSE work by IBM to create a computer chip True North, imitates the organization and functionality of the brain on the basis of “neyrosinapticheskih cores”, which in turn emulate the behavior of neurons.

It is possible that one day will be able to DARPA to build a machine that will be able to think, feel and understand its surrounding environment. Because of this robotics can step far forward, because scientists can build robots with a level of intelligence, such as mice or cats.
