blue brain

  1. 1. BLUE BRAIN
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION  HUMAN BRAIN, the 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 the death .  “BLUE BRAIN”- The name of the world’s first virtual brain or machine brain.
  3. 3.  IBM, in partnership with scientists at Switzerland’s Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne’s(EPFL) Brain and Mind Institute is now developing a virtual brain known as the BLUE BRAIN Within 30 years, we will be able to scan ourselves into the computers  So, even after the death of a person we will not loose the knowledge, intelligence, personalities, feelings and memories of that man that can be used for the development of the human society.
  4. 4. FUNCTIONING OF BRAIN HOW THE NATURAL BRAIN WORKS? The human ability to feel, interpret and even see is controlled, in computer like calculations, by the magical nervous system. Yes, the nervous system is quite like magic because we can't see it, but its working through electric impulses through your body. One of the worlds most "intricately organized" electron mechanisms is the nervous system. Not even engineers have come close to making circuit boards and computers as delicate and precise as the nervous system. To understand this system, one has to know the three simple functions that it puts into action: sensory input, integration, motor output.
  5. 5.  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 .
  6. 6.  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 while we still reside in our biological form.
  7. 7.  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.
  8. 8.  A super computer. (Blue Gene ) • 22.8 TFLOPS peak processing speed.  Processor with a very high processing power. • 8,096 CPUs at 700 MHz • 256MB to 512MB memory per processor
  9. 9.  a program to convert the electric impulses from the brain to input signal, which is to be received by the computer and vice versa.  Very powerful Nanobots to act as the interface between the natural brain and the computer
  10. 10. FUNCTIONING OF VIRTUAL BRAIN • Consists of artificial nervous system made up of silicon chips (artificial neurons). • Interpretation is done by means of a set of registers.
  11. 11. • To store data, required states of the registers are stored permanently. • Processing is done by using some stored states and the received input and by performing some arithmetic and logical calculations.
  12. 12. The project will search for insights into how human beings think and remember.  To find a cure for many psychological diseases.  The brain rewires itself every moment of its existence. If the scientists can crack open the secret of how and why the brain does it, the knowledge could lead to new breed of supercomputer.
  13. 13. ADVANTAGES A very good example of utilization of blue brain is the case “short term memory”.
  14. 14. Another situation is that when a person gets older, then he starts forgetting or takes a bit more time to remember. Using intelligence of a person after the death. Understanding the activities of animals . Advantageous to cure different brain disease.
  15. 15. DISADVANTAGES  We may become dependent upon the computer .  Others may use technical knowledge against us.  Computer viruses will pose an increasingly critical threat.  A very complex procedure of regaining the memory back.
  16. 16. CONCLUSI0N  We will be able to transfer ourselves into computers at some point.  It will bring both benefits and harm to human society. Very soon this technology will be highly accepted whole over the world
