singularity related: Protein-Nanoparticle Material Mimics Human Brain Tissue

A composite material consisting of a horse protein and metallic nanoparticles displays magnetic properties very similar to those of human brain tissue, scientists have found. The work, published in the June 20 online edition of Physical Review B, may help lead to a more thorough understanding of the magnetic behavior of brain tissue and other complex natural materials. Better understanding of the brain may lead to better Artificial Intelligence. The technological singularity is about creating intelligence greater than human to start an explosive rate of technological progress.
