"European scientists started work on the creation of a virtual complete and current copy of the human brain", informs ITAR-TASS. According to radio Bi-bi-si (UK), the project is 13 leading European research centers funded by the European Union. The budget of this program is slightly more than 1 billion euros.
Virtual brain-based supernova computer technology will help, in addition, to accurately determine the causes that lead to the development of certain diseases, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's, as well as to find a new path of their treatment.
The placement of the first virtual brain in the world is provided in the research center of jülich (Germany). Here is the world's most powerful supercomputer. All works are under the supervision of Professor Henry Markram, head of the laboratory for the study of the brain in Lausanne (Switzerland).
