Prof Sean Hill, co-director of the HBP project was giving a lecture at Imperial College London's Data Science Institute as part of London Tech Week (16-20 June 2014).
He talks to Motherboard about the importance of data integration within the Human Brain Project.
The machines might be getting smarter, but they're still a long way off from emulating the dizzying complexity of the human brain. We don’t even understand how our own brains work yet. But the Human Brain Project, which is funded by the EU and was launched towards the end of last year, plans to work on both of these simultaneously.
