What is Blue Brain?

  • “Blue brain” –The name of the world’s first virtual brain. That means a machine   that can function as human brain.
  • The main aim is to upload human brain into machine.
  • Is it possible..? Answer is “yes”
  • The IBM is now developing a virtual brain known as the Blue brain. It would be the world’s first virtual brain.

What is Virtual Brain?

  1. žWe can say Virtual brain is an artificial brain, which does not actually the natural brain, but can act as the brain.
  2. žIt can think like brain, take decisions based on the past experience, and response as the natural brain can.

Why need Virtual Brain?

žToday we are developed because of our intelligence. Intelligence is the inborn quality that can not be created .Some people have this quality ,so that they can think up to such an extent where other can not reach .

žHuman society is always need of such intelligence and such an intelligent brain to have with. But the intelligence is lost along with the body after the death. The virtual brain is a solution to it.

Brain Simulation:

Normal Brain VS Simulated Brain-

  • Normal Brain-
  1. INPUT: žThrough the natural neurons
  2. INTERPRETATION: žBy different states of the neurons in the brain.
  3. OUTPUT:ž Through the natural neurons.
  4. PROCESSING: žThrough arithmetic and logical calculations.ž
  5. MEMORY:ž Through permanent states of neurons
  • Simulated Brain-
  1. INPUT: žThrough the silicon chip or artificial neurons
  2. INTERPRETATION: žBy a set of bits in the set of register .
  3. OUTPUT: žThrough the silicon chip.
  4. PROCESSING: žThrough arithmetic and logical calculation and artificial intelligence
  5. MEMORY: žThrough Secondary memory

Artificial Neural Network of Brain:

Uploading Human Brain:

  1. žThe uploading is possible by the use of small robots known as the Nanobots
  2. žThese robots are small enough to travel through out our circulatory system. They will be able to monitor the activity and structure of our central nervous system.
  3. žThey will be able to provide an interface with computers that is as close as our mind can be while we still reside in our biological form.
  4. žNanobots could also carefully scan the structure of our brain, providing a complete readout of the connections.
  5. žThis information, when entered into a computer, could then continue to function as us.
  6. žThus the data stored in the entire brain will be uploaded into the computer.

 

Hardware & Software Requirement:

1.A super computer

2.Memory with a very large storing capacity

3.Processor with a very high processing power

4.A very wide network.

5. 100 kilowatts power consumption.

6.A program to convert the electric impulses from the brain to input signal, which is to be received by the computer, and vice versa.

7.Very powerful Nanobots to act as the interface between the natural brain and the computer

 

Disadvantages:

   Further, there are many new dangers these technologies will open. We will be susceptible to new forms of harm.

  1. We become dependent upon the computer systems.
  2. Others may use technical knowledge against us.
  3. Computer viruses will pose an increasingly critical threat.
  4. The real threat, however, is the fear that people will have of new technologies. Clear evidence of this type of fear is found today with respect to human cloning.
