SpiNNaker powering up world’s largest supercomputer, is a novel computer architecture inspired by the working of the human brain.
The brain, our most complex organ and the most difficult to understand, also including the use of supercomputers.
The Spiking Neural Network Architecture (SpiNNaker), world’s largest neuromorphic supercomputer, that has one million processor cores, was just switched on for the first time.
SpiNNaker, inspired by the fundamental structure and function of the human brain, is able to perform 200 trillion actions per second!
It has already been used to run an 80,000 neuron model of a segment of the brain.
