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 

FUNCTIONING OF HUMAN BRAIN






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 .

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

ANY QUERIES
