Dr. Henry Markram, from Brain Mind Institute at EPFL, Switzerland, is the coordinator of a project called Human Brain Project.

The project is sponsored by the European Commission under the umbrella of the Future Enabling Technologies (FET) initiative. In a recent talk, Dr. Markram presented the arguments in favor to such idea. See the details here.
