TheRedWheelbarrow writes: The singularity looms as the Human Brain Project gets up to $1.34 billion in funding.

"The challenge in AI is to design algorithms that can produce intelligent behaviour and to use them to build intelligent machines. It doesn’t matter whether the algorithms are biologically realistic – what matters is that they work – the behaviour they produce. In the HBP, we’re doing something completely different...we will base the technology on what we actually know about the brain and its circuitry."
