Superintelligence Software

I've seen lots of discussion of superintelligence recently and I've read what articles I could find on the subject. I've seen lots of talk about computer power skyrocketing into the stratosphere, singularities, and the Cubs winning the pennant.

What I have not seen is talk about software. Where is the software for these superintelligent entities? Where is the software for human-intelligent entities? As far as I can tell, no one has a firm idea how the human brain/mind works. Are we jumping the gun here? Shouldnt we be talking more about the software? Right now the sequence I see us envisioning is:

Computing power reaches brain level computing Nanotechnology matures to allow for the above computing power to work AND THEN A MIRACLE OCCURS and we have the software and VOILA! superintelligence!

I'm uncomtable with the MIRACLE thing. Anyone able to replace it?
