Value the awesome supercomputer between the ears

The human brain

 No technology can compete with the incredibly complex and über awesome supercomputer between our ears and between the ears of our students. Doesn’t even come close. Technology is a tool and it amounts to getting the right tool for the job and the right software for the occasion and letting the human brain spring into life both in the head of the teacher and in the head of the student. Technology can inspire and enhance activity and creativity. If you are working in collaboration with others then the spin offs can be endless. Scientists are collaborating across the globe to reverse engineer the human brain so they can create artificial intelligence but when you look at the power and capacity of the human brain and then the equivalent in terms of computing power, we have a long way to go and so much work to do. It does not stop us from accepting that challenge and scientists know that if they work collaboratively they will be harnessing all that human brain power in order to develop and progress computing power. The IBM project has attracted millions in funding and is looking at developing more intelligent computers for the business world. The site gives so many interesting links to follow up on this project and idea . The commitment from around the world is impressive. It is how we are going about learning , research and development these days. An even bigger project with 1.6 billion in funding is the 10 year human brain project which is looking at developing computers for neuromorphic computing and neurorobotics. They want to work out how the brain works and then design computer architecture around that. The video on the site is well worth viewing. In the mean time , value and enjoy the fact you are surrounded on a daily basis by the best living supercomputers and make the most of it.
