It usually isn't profitable to pay attention to science news, since science journalists largely misintrepret new "breakthroughs". But I am somewhat interested in this story about "artificial brains" coming out of Canada.
Most large neuron simulations I've read about before don't actually do anything. But apparently there's a somewhat large new WBE implementation at the University of Waterloo that performs sub-humanly on several tasks while having similar weaknesses to human brains.
Curious what others think of this recent development.
