Blue Brain Technology & History

Blue Brain Technology


Today, scientists are engaged in creating an artificial mind that can think, take decisions, respond and store things in memory. The name of this brain is Blue Brain and this technology is called Blue Brain Technology. The main purpose of making it is to "upload the brain of a human being into the artificial mind" so that the data that is in his brain after the death of a human being is safe and can be useful for us.

Now we try to find out what work will be done for the data of another human brain. Let's take an example. The great scientist Albert Einstein who has died, which is a very sad event. Because we were deprived of even more new inventions by them. His intelligence and knowledge also went with him. It is believed that if we had the data of his brain, then even after his death, his research, intelligence and knowledge would be among us and we can upload and process that data in blue brain.

That means, Albert Einstein would have been among us today and was inventing new innovations. But I would say that research done by artificial intelligence like this would be faster because machine can work faster than humans.

Technology is growing rapidly today. In addition, IBM and  Switzerland's Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne's (EPFL) , the scientists of the Brain  and Mind Institute, are engaged in making Blue Brain. The work of making this brain is being done by reverse engineering. Reverse engineering is the branch of engineering in which an attempt is made to create the same thing by looking at something made

After uploading the brain of man in blue brain, his biological form will be represented as a working 3D (stereoscopic) model by high speed electro chemical interaction. From this output, information can also be taken about the cognitive functions of the person like his language, his way of learning, his way of guessing or if he has a disease.

Actually we can say that blue brain is the technology by which we can give the machine the power to think. After the arrival of this technology, machines will start thinking too and we will be freed from this work too. Isn't this a wonderful technology? So let us first tell you that this technology is still in the works and according to an estimate, in the coming 30 years this technology will be in our midst and we will be able to upload ourselves into the computer.
Blue brain will also help us to understand human brain more so that solutions of many incurable diseases can also be found.

This brain supercomputer will work with the help of "Blue Gene". By which it can react like a natural brain and will be able to store the data of any person's brain and act like that person even if that person has died.


History of blue brain: 


This project is named Blue Brain Project. This project was started in May 2005 by the  Brain and Mind Institute of the Ecole Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne (EPFL), Switzerland in collaboration with IBM. This project N euroscientist Dr. Under the leadership of Henry Markram. In which a super computer named Blue Gene has been used, which is  running on Michael Hines's NEURON software. Its 3D output is not just a simulation but it is a realistic 3D simulation of the biological form of the neuronus.

Its progress is given in the table below.

Year Progress:


2005 Create the first single cellular model
2007 The first phase of the project was completed, in which the research of Neocortical column, data drive process etc. were completed.
2008 The first artificial cellular neocortical column was prepared, consisting of 10,000 cells.
2011 A cellular Mesocircuit consisting of 100 Neocortical columns was created.
2014 A rat brain was formed by mixing 100 Mesocircuits.
