Human Brain Project
The aim of the Human Brain Project (HBP) is to build biologically detailed simulations of the complete human brain and to create the informatics, modeling and supercomputing technologies necessary to do so.
The simulations created by the project will serve as the basis for new diagnostic tools and treatments for brain disease, new prosthetic technologies for people with disabilities, a new class of low energy information with brain-like intelligence, and a new generation of intelligent robots. The HBP’s goal should be to create an integrated system of ICT platforms and people with the potential to set in motion a new kind of ICT-based brain research. There should be an advanced platform specifically dedicated to: Neuroinformatics, Brain Simulation, Medical Informatics, High Performance Computing, Neuromorphic Computing, and Neurorobotics.
Last but not least, one of the most important project’s goal should be to demonstrate the value of these platforms for fundamental neuroscience research, clinical studies and technology development.
