Brain stimulation used to be just a cool idea in science fiction movies, novels and other hard to believe tales when human subjects were stimulated using electrical currents and achieved near super-human feats. But now, thanks to researchers at the University of New Mexico and other collaborators, brain stimulation is a step closer to becoming a possible reality.

Getting computers to think like humans has been a scientific goal for years – IBM recently said it found a way to make transistors that could be formed into virtual circuitry that mimics human brain functions. It is technology like that that the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is looking to develop as well.

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency wants “to create a new generation of machine-learning algorithms derived from high-fidelity representations of cortical microcircuits to achieve human-like performance on complex information processing tasks” under a project dubbed Machine Intelligence from Cortical Networks or MICrONS.
