What do you know about the PetaVision software they talk about? It
struck me as fundamentally similar to the Blue Brain project, and
other proported neural sims, interesting, but not implying any serious
analysis or new functional understanding, at least until they produce
some data which we can then compare to some model.

Do you have any factors you believe add up to that number? Does that
mean simply running a simulated human?

Are you affiliated with a AI project I'm not familiar with, or is this
a solo/stealth effort?
