One of the most ambitious research projects ever undertaken aims to create an artificial brain in the near future – a huge undertaking that should be taken seriously. Many specialists the world over are currently working on the project. Will it be possible one day to construct a machine that can replicate all our mental processes? Will an artificial brain be conscious? Will it be capable of controlling a robot-type body? Can the human mind be transferred to an avatar?
