Open Source FTW

Let's take what we know about the brain and use it, but let's not wait for the darned neuroscientists to finish their mapping of the brain. We're really not trying to build a human brain anyway, we're trying to build a highly powerful intelligence! Let's take what we know about the brain, what we know about complex problem-solving algorithms from writing them to solve various real-world problems, what we know about how the mind works from psychology and philosophy…and let's put all the pieces together, to make a new kind of digital mind.
