Supercomputer models one second of human brain activity

Supercomputer models one second of human brain activity | Mental Health | Scoop.it

The most accurate simulation of the human brain to date has been carried out in a Japanese supercomputer, with a single second’s worth of activity from just one per cent of the complex organ taking one of the world’s most powerful supercomputers 40 minutes to calculate.

 

Researchers used the K computer in Japan, currently the fourth most powerful in the world, to simulate human brain activity. The computer has 705,024 processor cores and 1.4 million GB of RAM, but still took 40 minutes to crunch the data for just one second of brain activity.

 

The project, a joint enterprise between Japanese research group RIKEN, the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University and Forschungszentrum Jülich, an interdisciplinary research center based in Germany, was the largest neuronal network simulation to date.

It used the open-source Neural Simulation Technology (NEST) tool to replicate a network consisting of 1.73 billion nerve cells connected by 10.4 trillion synapses.

 

While significant in size, the simulated network represented just one per cent of the neuronal network in the human brain. Rather than providing new insight into the organ the project’s main goal was to test the limits of simulation technology and the capabilities of the K computer.

Miro Svetlik's curator insight, January 15, 2014 3:40 AM

It is somehow comforting that we start performing this kind of tests. At least it places current infrastructure in perspective with what we will be facing in biocomputing if we dont change hardware. It would be really interesting to perform the same test on the supercomputer with neuromorphic chips but for that we have to wait a while I guess.
