Scientists have launched a supercomputer simulating the human brain

Ученые запустили суперкомпьютер, имитирующий мозг человекаFirst of all, this supercomputer need neuroscientists to better understand how the brain works.

The world’s largest neuromorphic supercomputer, designed on the principle of the human brain and include a processor with one million cores enabled. This was reported on the website Manchesteryou University, who was involved in the creation of a supercomputer.

“Millionth processor architecture “Spiking Neural Network Architecture” or “SpiNNaker” is able to perform more than 200 millions of millions of actions per second, and each chip has 100 million moving parts” – noted at the University.

It took scientists 20 years to develop the concept of a supercomputer, and another 10 years to build. Just spent £ 15 million. The project was originally funded Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC), and now it also supports the European project Human Brain Project (HBP). The supercomputer was first turned on 2 November.

SpiNNaker is unique because, unlike conventional computers, it does not transmit large amounts of information from point A to point B via a standard network. Instead, it imitates the architecture of a massive parallel communication of the brain, sending billions of small amounts of information in thousands of different directions at the same time.

First of all, this supercomputer need neuroscientists to better understand how the brain works.

“Neuroscientists are now able to use a SpiNNaker to reveal some of the secrets of the human brain works by conducting the unprecedented large-scale simulations. In addition, he works as a neural simulator in real time that allows the robotics to create a large-scale neural network for mobile robots, so they could move and speak,” said University Professor Steve Furber.
