The % of human brain modelling depends on the level at which neurons would be modelled.

All this to attempt to replicate the functions of a 3-lb (1.4 kg) brain that dissipates 50 watts--think about that. And it still won't be able to work out most things which the brain does. Very humbling!

This is probably much less than the brain capability of a gnat, but if you can get 1 billion gnat brains to work together then you might have something...

Indeed, but the aim of this project is to understand how the brain works. When it comes to mimicking the way it works to solve particular problems, I am sure we'll find better ways to do it :-)

"We don't know how the brain works as an information-processing system, and we do need to find out." Steve Furber could have reduced his ignorance by studying some of the research of Walter Freeman : http://sulcus.berkeley.edu/ Dr Freeman's work does not support the view that the brain processes information.

1% of brain with 1 million ARM cores is good. But how about memory? Does human brain have much more memory? Also, other part is learning, decision making and various moods of human. That will be interesting part of it.

This simulation will find out how the brain processes the information. It will be also interesting how the memory works. Because the human memory also seems to have an unlimited capacity and almost instantaneous searching speed ( many times it will beat Google!)

Just imagine about the power consumption of these 1 million ARM cores..

Good point about power dissipation...does anyone know what is power dissipated by one core in this project? Kris

Text says 18 ARM core on one die with power budget of 1W.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
