implosion of billion-euro brain project
« on: December 08, 2020, 12:26:01 am »

Noah Hutton’s documentary In Silico captures a sense of what it was like behind the scenes of the [Blue Brain] project, which was supported with great fanfare by the European Commission. It had been hyped as a quantum leap in understanding how the human brain works. Instead, it left a trail of angry neuroscientists across Europe. Yet aspects of what went so expensively wrong still remain elusive.

Yet another billion dollar project that failed. I remember feeling very excited about this one but as some of the project's critics pointed out, it was too soon to attempt such a thing. Maybe there was a sense that if science could sequence human DNA, it could also figure out the human brain using a similar brute force approach. Nevertheless, if at first you don't succeed, try and try again.
