"The challenge in AI is to design algorithms that can produce intelligent behaviour and to use them to build intelligent machines. It doesn’t matter whether the algorithms are biologically realistic – what matters is that they work – the behaviour they produce. In the HBP, we’re doing something completely different...we will base the technology on what we actually know about the brain and its circuitry."
