Researchers at the University of Waterloo have created the world’s largest working brain model, according to a university report. Waterloo professor Chris Eliasmith, the Canada Research Chair in Theoretical Neuroscience, and his team have published their research in the journal Science.
Researchers say that their brain model, called Spaun, is able to see, remember, think and write using a mechanical arm. Currently, Spaun and its environment are housed in a computer. While Spaun lives in a simulated world with simulated physics, the brain model still uses the same processes that your brain uses to pick up a glass of orange juice.
