IN SILICO

Noah Hutton
US 2020    52' 83'

Synopsis

A young filmmaker sets out to document a brilliant neuroscientist who has become frustrated with his field’s status quo. With time elapsing and millions of dollars on the line, IN SILICO explores an audacious 10-year quest to simulate the entire human brain on supercomputers. Along the way, it reveals the profound beauty of tiny mistakes and bold predictions — a controversial space where scientific process meets ego, and where the lines between objectivity and ambition blur.

“This is a bold and insightful film, a film that has the courage to change course of its basic hopes and beliefs. Noah Hutton, the filmmaker, realizes he has been carried away by a “sexy” TED Talk of a charismatic scientist with a big ego, and re-adjusts his perspectives after years of covering the research. I have never seen anything like this in films.” - Werner Herzog 

 

“A fascinating window into the trouble grandiose research projects and grandiose personalities can generate.” - Nature
