Can we model the human brain?Current stateDespite continuous efforts, we do not understand brains well enough to build one. So far, brain studies have mainly been approached by individuals, working in neuroscience or artificial intelligence laboratories. We believe that the way science is organized is not helful to understand how the brain works, since it puts to much emphasis on individuals vs. a more collaborative, anonymous, open approach typical of open source projects.
The ideaDevelop a collaborative open-source project to model the brain. The approach that should be follow is still unclear. It may range from the development of a large-scale hierarchical model of visual processing, or on building neural networks agents that can play video-games, or...
