The elation and gratification of this seminar will be incomplete withoutmentioning all the people who helped me to make it possible, whose gratitude andencouragement were invaluable to me.Firstly, I would like to thank GOD, almighty, our supreme guide, for bestowinghis blessings upon me in my entire endeavour. I express my sincere gratitude toDr.C.Sathish Kumar, Head of Department for his support and guidance.I also like to thank Mrs.Sangeetha (Asst Professor), Mrs.G.Sreelatha(Sr.lecturer), Mrs.Shanthini K.S. (lecturer) and Mrs.Agnes Jacob (lecturer) for theirvaluable words of advice.I am also thankful to all the other lecturers in our department and students of my class for their support and suggestions.
Today scientists are in research to create an artificial brain that can think,respond, take decision, and keep anything in memory. The main aim is to uploadhuman brain into machine. So that man can think, take decision without any effort.After the death of the body, the virtual brain will act as the man. So, even after thedeath of a person we will not loose the knowledge, intelligence, personalities, feelingsand memories of that man, that can be used for the development of the human society.Technology is growing faster than every thing. IBM is now in research to create avirtual brain, called “Blue brain”. If possible, this would be the first virtual brainof the world. IBM, in partnership with scientists at Switzerland’s Ecole Polytech-nique Federale de Lausanne’s (EPFL) Brain and Mind Institute will begin simulatingthe brain’s biological systems and output the data as a working 3-dimensional modelthat will recreate the high-speed electro-chemical interactions that take place withinthe brain’s interior. These include cognitive functions such as language, learning,perception and memory in addition to brain malfunction such as psychiatric disorderslike depression and autism. From there, the modeling will expand to other regions of the brain and, if successful, shed light on the relationships between genetic, molecularand cognitive functions of the brain.ii
