Simulated Brain Scores Top Test Marks

Canadian researchers have a simulated brain (Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network – SPAUN) that produces complex behaviors:

Spaun sees a series of digits: 1 2 3; 5 6 7; 3 4 ?. Its neurons fire, and it calculates the next logical number in the sequence. It scrawls out a 5, in legible if messy writing.
