    A chip developed by European scientists simulates the learning capabilities of the human brain.

    Its an interesting idea to simulate a very tiny part of a human brain.
    It would be presumptious if they think it should be possible to create a fully functional human brain.
    I propose that they start out with the brain of an ant,i guess it take a another millenium to get to that point if ever.
