What is BLUE BRAIN?
Objective of Blue Brain
Uploading Human Brain
Requirements & Power
PROS & CONS
Human brain-most valuable creation of God.
The man is called intelligent because of the brain. But we loss
the knowledge of a brain when the body is destroyed after
“BLUE BRAIN”- The name of the world’s first virtual brain. That
means a machine that can function as a human brain.
BLUE BRAIN, a virtual brain introduced by IBM, which can
think, respond, take decision, and keep anything in memory.
Within 30 years we can scan ourselves into computer.
Can we back a person’s brain after death?
The goal is to reverse engineer the brain into a computer.
BLUE BRAIN- World’s first virtual brain. The machine that
functions as a human brain.
After the death of a person we will not loose the knowledge,
intelligence, personalities and feelings that’s useful for the society.
Today are developed with technologies because of our intelligence.
Intelligence is the inborn quality that cannot be created.
Certain super brains like that of Steve Jobs, or Stephen
Hawkings could be interfaced with computer to develop Super
The need of a Blue Brain is :
To upload contents of natural brain into it.
To keep the intelligence and skill of any person forever.
To remember things without any effort.
IBM’s blue brain project will search for insights into how
human beings think and remember.
Scientists think that blue brain could also help to cure
The brain circuitry is in a complex stat of flux, the brain
rewiring itself every moment of its existence. If scientists
can crack open the secret of how and why the brain does it,
the knowledge could lead to new breed of super

Now the working of a Virtual brain is clear.
This is done by UPLOADING HUMAN
This is also possible due to fast growing
Uploading is possible by the use of small
robots known as nanobots.
These robots are small enough to travel
throughout our circulatory system.
Will monitor activity of brain by travelling
into spine and brain.
They will be able to provide an interface
with computer while we still reside with
our biological form.
Nanobots can also scan the structure of
our brain, providing a complete readout of
This information, when entered into a
computer, could then continue to function
Thus the data stored in the entire brain
will be uploaded into the computer.
The IBM’s “BLUE BRAIN” Super Computer at Lausanne
A very good example of utilization of blue brain is the case of
“Short Term Memory”.
In some movies we would have noticed that some person will
be having short term memories.
Another situation is that when a person gets older, then he
starts forgetting or takes a bit more time to recognize to a
For these above reasons we need a blue brain.
Hardware and Software required:
A Super Computer.
Memory with a very large storing capacity
(256MB to 512MB) per processor.
100 KW power consumption.
Processor with very high processing power.
Linux and C++ Software.
A program to control electric impulses from
brain to input signal, which is to be received by
the computer and vice-versa.
Very powerful Nanobots to act
a the interface between natural
brain and the computer.
8,096 CPUs at 700MHz each of
which can map one or two
simulated brain neurons.
BLUE BRAIN POWER
Blue bran will reveal many existing aspects of the brain
circuits, memory capacity and how memories are lost.
The modeling is also able to work out best way to
compensate and repair error circuits.
The blue brain model can be used to detect and test
treatment stratergies for neurological diseases.
It acts as a Super Computer.
Remembering things without any effort.
Making decision without the presence of a person.
Using Intelligence of a person even after his death.
Improvements in processing speed and memory could
make entire Brain Simulated.
Allowing the deaf to hear via direct nerve Simulation.
We become dependent upon the Computer.
Others may use technical knowledge against us.
A very costly procedure of regaining the memory back.
Possibilities of human cloning.
If in future surrogates to humans are developed then, there will
be no human interaction and the world will run on Computers
Gathering and testing 100 years of data.
Cracking the Neural Code.
Understanding Neocortical Information Processing.
To develop a new breed of Super Computer.
A Global Facility.
A Foundation for Whole Brain Simulations.
A Novel Tool for Drug Discovery for Brain Disorders.
A Foundation for Molecular Modeling of Brain Function.
Prosthetic devices to restore vision, hearing or limb control
might be the next step.
Further in future, the real dreams would be the realization
of the “brain-in-computer and chip-in-brain” arrangement.
This is just ‘blink of an eye’ … there’s lot more to come …
by us, the Future Engineers.
Very soon this technology will be
highly acceptable whole over the world.
“Technology does not create Brain but
Brain creates Technology”.
We will be able to transfer ourselves
into Computers at some point of time &
this is just the beginning…….
