  3. 3. INTRODUCTION “Human Brain “The most valuable creation of GOD The intelligence of a person is lost after his/her death Is there any solution for this WHAT IS BLUE BRAIN BLUE BRAIN. The worlds first virtual brain Is being developed by IBM Within 30 years we will be able to scan ourselves into computers
  4. 4. WHAT IS BLUE BRAIN The 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.
  5. 5. EXAMPLE OF BLUE BRAIN A very good example of utilization of blue brain is the case "short term memory". A another situation is that when a person gets older, then he starts forgetting or takes a bit more time to recognize to a person. For the above reason we need a blue brain. It is simple chip that can be installed into the human brain for which the short term memory and volatile memory at the old age can be avoided.
  6. 6. WHAT IS VIRTUAL BRAIN ??? A machine that functions as ou Brain We can just call it as Artificial Brain Possible by using Super Computers WHY DO WE NEED VIRTUAL BR To upload the contents of huma brain To keep a personals intelligence/skill alive To remember the things withou any effort
  7. 7. WHY WE NEED VIRTUAL BRAIN• To upload contents of the natural brain into it .• To keep the intelligence , knowledge and skill of any person for ever .• To remember things without any effort .
  8. 8. Blue Brain: An Artificial Brain Comes To Life In Switzerland• The machine is beautiful as it wakes up – it means it works in a fine way when started.Nerve cells flicker on the screen , along with that electrical charges are produced.• This piece of hardware consists of about 10,000 computer chips that act like real nerve cells.• The simulation was created at the Technical University in Lausanne, Switzerland, where 35 researchers participate in maintaining this artificial brain.
  9. 9. Blue Brain: An Artificial Brain Comes To Life In Switzerland• It runs on one of the worlds most powerful supercomputers.• The goal is to build a much bigger electronic thinking machine -- one that would ultimately replicate the human brain .• "Blue Brain," is the most radical attempt so far to investigate the mystery of consciousness.
  10. 10. UPLOADING OF HUMAN BRAIN
  11. 11. UPLOADING HUMAN BRAIN• The 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 that is as close as our mind can be while we still reside in our biological form .
  12. 12. Photos of nanobots:-
  13. 13. UPLOADING HUMAN BRAIN(CONT….)• 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.
  14. 14. FLASHES OF ACTIVITY • Blue Brain started producing flashes of activity that scientists recognized from measurements of natural brain behavior -- on its very first day. "It happened entirely on its own“.
  15. 15. BLUE BRAIN IN LAUSANNA,SWITZERLAND• The "Blue Brain" supercomputer in Lausanne, Switzerland.
  16. 16. BLUE BRAIN MODEL VISUALISATION • The representation shows the part of the brain which has been modeled using a supercomputer. • The visualization is part of an ambitious project to create a biologically accurate, functional model of the brain using IBMs Blue Gene supercomputer.
  17. 17. BENEFITS OF BLUE BRAIN It acts as a supercomputer. Improvements in processing,speed and memory could make entire human brain simulated. Things could be remembered without any effort. Use the intelligence of the person after death. It can make decisions entirely of its own. Allowing the deaf to hear via direct nerve simulation.
  18. 18. DISADVANTAGES OF BLUE BRAIN• We become dependent upon the computers.• Another fear is found with respect to human cloning.• A very costly procedure of regaining the memory back.
  19. 19. CONCLUSION• Will be able to transfer ourselves into the computer at some point.• Eventually aim of applying terrific computer power to the simulation of an entire brain.• Very soon this technology will be highly accepted whole over the world.
