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.
