Hear, hear! In fact, I would divide this into three different tasks:
1) Getting useful AI out of a neural net;
2) A neuronal emulation good enough that it's helpful to use synaptic
patterns and neuroanatomical architectures and training methods derived
from study of the human brain;
3) Emulating an actual human, or useful parts thereof, that you somehow scanned.
