and after some searching, here is the official site with papers:
Don't get too excited from the sensationalist title. It's not quite a whole
brain simulation, just 8,000 neurons. However the researchers are trying to
be faithful to the real world interactions of neurons.
And presumably with this model it can help deduce simpler neuron
representations, further increasing efficiency. I won't expect any practical
applications to come from this for many years at least due to the
computational expense of the model.
