INTRODUCTION “BLUE BRAIN”- The nameof the world’s first virtual brain. That means amachine that can function as human brain.
What is BLUE BRAINThe IBM is now developing a virtual brain known as the BLUE BRAIN.It would be the worlds first virtual brain. Within 30 years, we will be able to scan ourselves into the computers.
WHAT IS VIRTUAL BRAIN?A machine that can function as brainIt can take decision.It can think.It can response.It can keep things in memory.It also has feelings and emotions.
WHY WE NEED VIRTUAL BRAINTo upload contents of the natural brain into itTo keep the intelligence , knowledge and skill of any person for ever .To remember things without any effort .
FUNCTIONING OF BRAIN Sensory Input :- Receiving input such as sound ,image, etc through sensory cell . Interpretation. Interpretation of the received input by the brain by defining states of neurons in the brain. Motor Output. Receiving of electric responses from the brain to perform any action .
BRAIN SIMULATIONNATURAL BRAIN VS SIMULATED BRAININPUT INPUTThrough the natural Through the silicon chip neurons or artificial neuronsINTERPRETATION INTERPRETATIONBy different states of the By a set of bits in the set neurons in the brain. of register
OUTPUT OUTPUTBased on the states of Output is based on the neurons , electric registers and sent impulses are sent. through artificial neurons.PROCESSING PROCESSINGPast experience and Decision making is done current input are used andusing stored states and states of neurons are input changeMEMORY MEMORYThrough permanent states Through Secondary of neurons memory
STEPS INVOLVEDThe team will start by modeling the electrical structure of neural circuits repeated throughout the brain and then map and model their behavior.Once complete, they will move onto creating a molecular model of the neurons involved and a complete neocortex (the largest and most complex part of the human brain) before modelling the rest of the brain.
UPLOADING HUMAN BRAINThe uploading is possible by the use of small robots known as the nanobots.These robots are small enough to travel through out our circulatory system.Traveling into the spine and brain, they will be able to monitor the activity and structure of our central nervous system.They will be able to provide an interface with computer while we still reside in our biological form .
Nanobots could also carefully scan the structure of our brain, providing a complete readout of the connection.This information, when entered into a computer, could then continue to function as us.Thus the data stored in the entire brain will be uploaded into the computer.
Simulating the micro circuit Once the microcircuit is built, Blue Gene are pressed into service, in a massively parallel computation solving the complex mathematical equations that govern the electrical activity in each neuron when a stimulus is applied. As the electrical impulse travels from neuron to neuron, the results are communicated via inter-processor communication (MPI).
ADVANTAGES• Remembering things without any effort.• Making decision without the presence of a person.• Using intelligence of a person after the death .• Understanding the activities of animals .• Allowing the deaf to hear via direct nerve• stimulation.DISADVANTAGES• We become dependent upon the computer .• Others may use technical knowledge against us.
HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE REQUIRMENT22.8 TFLOPS peak processing speed.8,096 CPUs at 700 MHz (downgraded to handle massive parallel processing).256MB to 512MB memory per processor.Linux and C++ software.100 kilowatts power consumption.very powerful Nanobots to act as the interface between the natural brain and the computer.
CONCLUSION:-We will be able to transfer ourselves into computers at some point.
