Synopsis by Augustine Chay

Writer-director Noah Hutton’s documentary follows neuroscientist Henry Markram on his ambitious decade-long quest to create an artificial simulation of the human mind through supercomputers. With his professional reputation and millions of dollars of research funding from the European Commission’s Human Brain Project (HBP) on the line, Markram struggles to achieve his research objectives and prove his critics wrong.
