What Makes Brain Simulator Unique?

Brain Simulator II is a free, open-source software project for creating the next phase of artificial intelligence (AI) – Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Many important features set it apart from other Artificial Intelligence software:

  • The AGI Strategy: an experimental platform which can be easily revised to create any desired functionality.
  • Easy User Interface: a graphical neuron and module display which allows users to explore/modify the network’s internal working in real time.
  • Powerful Spiking Neuron Engine: tested with a billion neurons, the Brain Simulator can process up to 2.5 billion synapses per second on a desktop computer. Networks can be distributed across multiple servers.
  • AGI Modules and Applications: which perform a variety of AI tasks and combine with the neuron engine to demonstrate vision, mobility, internal modeling, language, and planning.


  • Millions of neurons on your desktop. Processing in real time!
  • Create networks from scratch or from a library of functions.
  • Seamlessly spread huge neuron arrays across a multiple servers.
  • More than 50 modules for speech, vision, and robotic controls.
  • Universal Knowledge Store (UKS) stores ANY kind of information in links equivalent to synapses.
  • Write your own modules.

Strategy: Today, the Brain Simulator's simple 2D and 3D simulators sidestep complexity starting with just a few object types, a few possible attributes, a few relationships and a small vocabulary. This year's expansion will include learning new objects, attributes, and relationships as they are encountered within the environment.

Objective: Intended to create an end-to-end AGI system with modules for vision, hearing, robotic control, learning, internal modelling, and even planning, imagination, and forethought. The incremental development strategy is creating the simplest ideas first.
