IBM hopes to simulate human brain in nine years.
IBM’s Blue Brain Project has spent the last six years aiming to replicate the function of a human brain using supercomputers. At the last milestone two years ago, the group simulated the brain of a cat.
Now a new research paper is claiming the “dawn of a new era in the scale of cortical simulations”, by announcing that 4.5% of a working human brain has been replicated using 147,456 processors
The current schedule is set to have the simulated human brain 100% complete by 2019, using 880,000 processors.
