Artificial intelligence and life beyond Earth

Artificial brains are man-made machines that are just as intelligent, creative, and self-aware as humans. No such machine has yet been built, but it is only a matter of time. Given current trends in neuroscience, computing, and nanotechnology, we estimate that artificial general intelligence will emerge sometime in the 21st century, maybe even by the year 2050.

This website is a private, independent project to track the latest scientific and technological progress towards that goal. Focus is placed on two approaches: large-scale, biologically-realistic, human brain simulations within currently available supercomputers; and the building of novel, massively-parallel, neuromorphic computing devices that are closely modelled on neural tissue.

Of the biggest mysteries in science and metaphysics, i.e. why does the universe exist, what is the ultimate theory of everything, is there intelligent life elsewhere, etc., we consider human consciousness to be the most pressing and yet most within our reach. By reverse engineering the human brain we will come to understand it. By reconstructing and enhancing the brain we will be empowered to push forward our understanding of the universe and to evolve life to the next level.
