Clicking for consciousness

Web users are being invited to help create the first model of human thought.

By collecting "atoms of information" a Canadian scientist hopes to be able to teach a computer what it means to be human.

Once created, the body of knowledge will be made available to other artificial intelligence researchers trying to make machines smarter or easier to interact with.

The project is expected to run for ten years or however long it takes to collect one billion nuggets of knowledge.
