The fields of neuroscience and artificial intelligence (AI) have a long and intertwined history. In more recent times, however, communication and collaboration between the two fields has become less commonplace.

The Human Brain Project (HBP) is building a research infrastructure to help advance neuroscience, medicine, and computing. It is one of four FET (Future and Emerging Technology) Flagships, the largest scientific projects ever funded by the European Union. The 10-year Project began in 2013 and directly employs some 500 scientists at more than 100 universities, teaching hospitals, and research centres across Europe. Six ICT research Platforms form the heart of the HBP infrastructure:

  • Neuroinformatics (access to shared brain data)
  • Brain Simulation (replication of brain architecture and activity on computers)
  • High Performance Analytics and Computing (providing the required computing and analytics capabilities)
  • Medical Informatics (access to patient data, identification of disease signatures)
  • Neuromorphic Computing (development of brain-inspired computing)
  • Neurorobotics (use of robots to test brain simulations)

Julich-Brain Atlas

a probabilistic map of human brains that accounts for individual differences using a computational framework. Rather than generating a static PDF of a brain map, the Julich-Brain atlas is also dynamic, in that it continuously changes to incorporate more recent brain mapping results. So far, the map has data from over 24,000 thinly sliced sections from 23 postmortem brains covering most years of adulthood at the cellular level. But the atlas can also continuously adapt to progress in mapping technologies to aid brain modeling and simulation, and link to other atlases and alternatives. In other words, rather than “just another” human brain map, the Julich-Brain atlas is its own neuromapping API—one that could unite previous brain-mapping efforts with more modern methods. ...

How the Mind's Mistakes Make Humans Creative, Innovative, and Successful | Henning Beck

We learn that boredom awakens the muse, distractions spark creativity, and misjudging time creates valuable memories, among other benefits of our faulty minds.
