Around the mid of the 20th century, pioneering theoreticians of brain science and computer science such as von Neumann, Turing, McCulloch, Pitts and Barlow, were beginning to leverage their interests in the other field to gain a better understanding of their own. These two fields have since then rapidly grown their prestige as sciences, as they became more sophisticated and their body of knowledge expanded. However, in doing so, they have also grown further apart.

In this talk I will outline some recent efforts from both research communities to recognize the potential for what could be achieved in a unified research effort to answer the question:
"What are the algorithms which run our brain?"
