A project equivalent to LHC in significance has started in Switzerland, combines the brainpower of 135 science institutions and government entities to create the computer brain. The project will cost about $1.6 billion.
The group of scientists and researchers is working to develop the fastest computer known to man that would operate much like the human brain.
The human brain is the most complex machine in existence, so it seems almost natural that technology would want to replicate its powers. The computer in development would be 1,000 times faster than even the fastest ones we use today.
