Video: Neelie Kroes & Prof Henry Markram on the Human Brain Project

In this video, Neelie Kroes from the European Commission discusses the Human Brain Project with Prof. Henry Markram. This week the project won the EU’s “Future & Emerging Technology Flagship” grant for 1 billion euros of research funding.

The future desktop will have a normal digital processor and neuromorphic computing processor. And that will give you human-like or brain-like computing capabilities.

Is it time to dust off Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics? According to Markram, supercomputing simulations will be key to developing a working model of the human brain.
