Supercomputer Simulates Mouse Brain

Scientists have simulated half a mouse brain by running a cortical simulator of their BlueGene L supercomputer. This appears to be a step toward artificial intelligence. The supercomputer ran the cortical simulator program for half a mouse’s brain and according to those present the first thing the computer did was utter the words:

“The war in Iraq is lost”

Then the computer began making land deals and accepting illegal gifts. The computer was shut down after it indicated that it was expressing the will of the American people.

    I think the mouse that becomes a mouse is so much cooler. It’s a dead cyborg mouse!
