No, if you re-read my message, I said it would
take 20 years to train. That's 20 years of feeding
it data (sensory or otherwise), and having the
equivalent of building a synapse map based on those
inputs. That's how our brains develop (probably).
Since you would be doing synapse processes nearly
ad-infinitum, it would probably make sense to have
hardware accelerators like we do for graphics, i.e.
special purpose chips to implement whatever the
Where's the software for your brain? The part of
your DNA that codes for brain development only sets
the initial growth. The detailed wiring happens
as you live and experience life.
