OpenWorm was such a cool project! I've been wondering why development had stalled!
The juiciest part is at the bottom:
«jefftk showed the major problems are:
Knowing the connections isn't enough, we also need to know the weights and thresholds. We don't know how to read them from a living worm.
C. elegans is able to learn by changing the weights. We don't know how weights and thresholds are changed in a living worm.
[...] Hence, it's merely a boring artificial neural network, not a brain emulation.»
