Further progress will be made in understanding the secrets of the human brain. Hundreds of distinct sub-regions with specialized functions will be identified. Some of the algorithms that code for development of these regions will be deciphered and incorporated into neural net computers. Massively parallel neural nets, which will be constructed through reverse-engineering the human brain, will be in common use.
