How will we build an artificial human brain?

follow io9.comThere's an ongoing debate among neuroscientists, cognitive scientists, and even philosophers as to whether or not we could ever construct or reverse engineer the human brain. Regardless, it's fair to say that ongoing breakthroughs in brain science are steadily paving the way to the day when an artificial brain can be constructed from scratch. And if we assume that cognitive functionalism holds true as a theory the idea that our brains are a kind of computer there are two very promising approaches worth pursuing. One side wants to build a brain with code, while the other wants to recreate all the brain's important functions by emulating it on a computer.
