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 world’s first virtual brain  It’s being developed by IBM  Within 30 years we will be able to scan ourselves into computers

WHAT IS VIRTUAL BRAIN? A machine that functions as our Brain  We can just call it as Artificial Brain  Possible by using Super Computers

WHY DO WE NEED VIRTUAL BRAIN??
To upload the contents of human brain  To keep a person’s intelligence/skill alive  To remember the things without any effort

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 .

FUNCTIONING OF HUMAN BRAIN

BRAIN SIMUALATION Natural Brain vs Artificial Brain
 

INPUT Through the natural neurons INTERPRETATION By different states of the neurons in the brain

 

 

 

INPUT Through the silicon chip or artificial neurons INTERPRETATION By a set of bits in the set of register

 

 

OUTPUT Through the natural neurons. PROCESSING Through arithmetic and logical calculations

 

 

OUTPUT Through the silicon chip . PROCESSING Through arithmetic and logical calculation and artificial intelligence

 

MEMORY Through permanent states of neurons

 

MEMORY Through Secondary memory

ARTIFICIAL NUERAL NETWORK

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.  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.

RESEARCH WORK
IBM developing the “Blue brain”  IBM, in partnership with scientists at Switzerland’s Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne’s(EPFL) Brain and Mind Institute will begin simulating the brain’s biological systems

Software & Hardware Requirement
 

   

22.8 TFLOPS peak processing speed. 8,096 CPUs at 700 MHz (downgraded to handle massive parallel processing). 256MB to 512MB memory per processor. Linux and C++ software. 100 kilowatts power consumption. very powerful Nanobots to act as the interface between the natural brain and the computer.

ADVANTAGES
Intelligence of a person is not lost even after his death  Things can be remembered easily without much effort  Allowing deaf to hear via nerve simulation  Making decisions without the presence of the person

DISADVANTAGES
We become dependent upon the computer  Others may use technical knowledge against us.  Another fear is found today with respect to human cloning

We will be able to turn ourselves into computers
