Reverse Engineering the Brain

The complexity of the design of the human brain is about a billion times simpler than the actual complexity we find in the brain. This is due to the brain (like all biology) being a probabilistic recursively expanded fractal. We can ascertain the complexity of the design of the human brain because the design is contained in the genome and the genome (including non-coding regions) only has about 30 to 100 million bytes of compressed information in it due to the massive redundancies in the genome.

The requisite algorithms will be available in the next 20 years.

We did not have scanners that could see into the human brain with sufficient resolution until recently.
