Artificial Brain Ten Years Away?

From the TED conference: ' ... Professor Markram said he would send a hologram to talk at TED in 10 years. A detailed, functional artificial human brain can be built within the next 10 years, a leading scientist has claimed. Henry Markram, director of the Blue Brain Project, has already simulated elements of a rat brain. He told the TED Global conference in Oxford that a synthetic human brain would be of particular use finding treatments for mental illnesses.... ' . I have my doubts, there is just so much we don't know to perform this kind of engineering feat. A hologram is not an autonomous brain. More on Blue Brain.
