It contains 2.5 million virtual neurons — many fewer than the 86 billion in the average human head, but enough to recognize lists of numbers, do simple arithmetic and solve reasoning problems.
    "Until now, the race was who could get a human-sized brain simulation running, regardless of what behaviours and functions such simulation exhibits, from now on, the race is more about who can get the most biological functions and animal-like behaviours. So far, Spaun is the winner"
