The computer what? Connectome. The computer’s wiring diagram. The road map of how all the parts are connected.
Okay, granted, the term, connectome, usually applies to the neural wiring of a biological organism’s brain, particularly to the human brain. But the whole point of this series of posts is to compare a human brain with a computer so that we can think about how we might implement a human mind with a computer. As such, “connectome” seems apropos.
Today we’ll try to figure out what’s involved in modeling one in software.
