I believe this article should be deleted as it refers to something which does not exist. There are other articles which treat this subject properly as speculative fiction.

To develop this article, it should bring together material from:

  1. Mind uploading#Blue Brain Project and computational issues
  2. Strong AI#Simulated human brain model

as well as other sources, such as The Singularity is Near by Ray Kurzweil, and perspectives from Neuroscience.

It should address the issues of:

  1. How much computing power does the human brain use? (This should cite various predictions, by Hans Moravec, Ray Kurzweil and many others. Maybe a table would be good.)
  2. When does Moore's Law predict that this much computing power will be available?
  3. What are the prospects of duplicating the function of the nervous system and neural structures? How is it difficult? What are the issues?
  4. Historical research approaches such as Pitts & McCullough, etc.
  5. Current research approaches, such as Blue Brain, Artificial Intelligence System etc.
  6. It should link to philosophy of artificial intelligence#The brain can be simulated and ethics of artificial intelligence.

did some of this - in particular got some paras out of strong AI that fit better here Bitstrat (talk) 17:12, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Brain death[edit]

Critics of the notion of brain death have sometimes argued that it could be invalidated by the futuristic existence of artificial brains, given that death in its broadest definition involves the entire body and that it happens on the cellular level, and not on any peculiar mnemonic level. Hence, if your brain unexpectedly dies, it might be replaced by one of these organic computer brains that would maintain your previous state of psychological consciousness, as one would store information on a computer disk.

Survey article: artificial brain projects[edit]

A 2010 article which surveys large-scale simulations of brains: article (sorry, paywall). I think it could be a useful reference material. Ben T/C 08:24, 7 December 2012 (UTC)
