A new article posted at Technology Review suggests that Neuroinformatics, the use of information technology to understand the human brain, is what's needed to get neural net research back on track. Most artificial neural network software is based on ideas about the human nervous system that are 40 years out of date and there's very little communication between neuroscientists and AI researchers. NIMH is proposing a neuroinformatics program called the Human Brain Project which could make it much easier for researchers in the two fields to share information.

Good shot. I know from my own experience that 10 years ago, Neural Network research was a lot of re-inventing wheels. Hopefully this new program will really bring bright new concepts. Willem
