SCAN TRANSLATION SYSTEM
BrainGenix Scan Translation System (STS) facilitates the functional translation of architectural data from scans of brain tissue and the to-be-developed generic working model of the human brain. Depending on feasibility, additional functional data may be incorporated as required. STS will incorporate the functional and structural data it receives into a workable model to be run on the other divisions of the BrainGenix software suite, namely NES and ERS. For more information, view our Technical Specifications document.
The main goal of STS is the functional translation of architectural data from scans of brain tissue. Translation, the process of converting data to functional models, is currently a bottleneck for the achievement of whole brain emulation. It involves image processing, scan interpretation, and representation of neural systems through software. STS will enable the development of the processes necessary to use both functional and structural data from a brain to derive models that reproduce function. The program will incorporate neural data into workable models that will run on other divisions of the BrainGenix software suite, namely NES and ERS.
STS is constantly evolving as new features are added. We have developed a method to calculate the capacitance of neurons and are working on more ways to facilitate translation. Keep up with our current progress on the STS GitHub page and the Trello Board.
