- The Open Worm Project aims to recreate the behavior of the common roundworm in a machine
- The open source project has taken four years to model 302 of the worm's neurons in its software
- It had its first major breakthrough recently when the software independently controlled a Legobot
- The robot mimicked some of the behaviors of the worm, responding to external stimulus through sensors
(CNN)A humble roundworm is leading the race in artificial intelligence, showing that it may be possible one day to upload our brains to a computer.
