The Whole Brain Architecture Initiative
The Whole Brain Architecture Initiative is a non-profit organization (NPO) founded in Japan in August 2015, whose purpose is to support research activities aiming for realizing artificial intelligence with human-like cognitive capabilities by studying the entire architecture of the brain. It performs educational activities such as holding seminars and hackathons and compiling educational materials, as well as R&D activities such as developing software platforms to support research in artificial intelligence and facilitating communication among research communities.
