If you thought the human brain couldn’t be modeled, think again. The human brain contains 100 billion neurons, each neuron can connect with up to 1 billion other neurons. So how can we simulate the human brain?
A group of researchers from British Universities are working on developing a massive supercomputer that makes use of up to a million ARM processors. The machine will be called SpiNNaker (Spiking Neural Network Architecture) and will be used to simulate the inner workings of the brain.
