Scientists upload a worm’s mind into a Lego robot #oshw #biohacking

Scientists upload a worm’s mind into a Lego robot – CNN.com.

A humble roundworm is leading the race in artificial intelligence, showing that it may be possible one day to upload our brains to a computer.

Called the Open Worm Project, the research brings together scientists and programmers from around the world with the aim of recreating the behavior of the common roundworm (Caenorhabditis elegans) in a machine.

The open source project recently had its first major breakthrough when its software — modeled on the neurons of the worm’s nervous system — independently controlled a Lego robot.
