This commentary puts the In Silico movie in perspective of the Human Brain Project (HBP) and clarifies major differences between this project and the Blue Brain Project, emphasizing that the two projects are very different in scope.

This commentary was written, per invitation, to comment on the “In Silico” movie, by Noah Hutton, who followed neuroscientist Henry Markram and his attempt to develop a computer model of the brain.
