Nature quotes Eugene Izhikevich, chairman of Brain Corporation, as saying, “Until now, the race was who could get a human-sized brain simulation running, regardless of what behaviours and functions such simulation exhibits. From now on, the race is more [about] who can get the most biological functions and animal-like behaviours. So far, Spaun is the winner.”
Full disclosure: I am a member of the team that created Spaun."
