Supercomputer takes 40 mins to calculate a single second of human brain activity

13 posts in this topic

With 705,024 processor cores and 1.4 million GB of RAM at its disposal, the K computer took 40 minutes to model the data in a project designed to test the ability of the supercomputer and gauge the limits of brain simulation.

There you go eh?

Gotta learn to use that brain....

Could this be attempting to measure the infinite possibilities (timelines, again), that the brain is capable of not only considering, but exploring?

Wooooow...that's a fascinating view on our brain ability we have...

We are miraculous organic machine....just so impaired towards commanding it properly. 8)

Thanks for the link, Arc!

What drives our brain activity is emotion.  :D    :o  :rofl:  :yahoo:   :wub:  

 

What drives a machines processor is a series of  0000000000000 1111111111111111111

 

Human Self awareness is a bitch to try to replicate eh PTB

DMS-V would probably claim our brain is the culprit of all the mental illness in the world thus demolish it...eyes rolling :tongue:

(But it is heart which has 3 times stronger emitter of EMF than brain, and adrenal glands are more intertwined with emotions, I thought...no?? :blink:  )

This is what I think everytime someone thinks about making an AI:

Well it would seem that we are linked to all and any possibility of our existence at each and any reference point....so an artificial concept of us.......would have a hard time processing that 'lump' of information....lol

Red Dwarf had a lot of 'out there' ideas in its time.  We loved it too.

Yeah I loved Red Dwarf, too! (Especially Cat....needless to say...lol)

 

Red Dwarf and Dr Who are the cream of the crop coming out of the UK for this sort of mind bending concepts, I feel...

Bring on any artificial concept of being you want.

 

Even quantum computing could not do as we do.

 

Each second is defined by an infinite number of possible probabilities.......the spaces between the points of being....the unseen perhaps in the decision.

 

We do this naturally every point of being within each second.

But we are even more.......we do this without thought within the infinite nether and ether of a timeless void, bringing the singular expression of the creative awareness to being.......point by point........and that is for each of us!

 

Now that realization should worry any and all who may wish to partake of us :)

The truth of the matter is...

No one knows how our brains work.

It is up to you to figure out how your brain works and to start using it.

The Human nervous system is complex antenna designed to relay instructions and memory / information from the oversoul seed - an extra-dimensional, so-called 'magnetic' entity that envelops a sphere of existence.

 

The brain of most any human on the sphere Earth is, in its current state, an intentionally crippled CPU ( corrupted pineal, hyper-bound corpus callosum and over-grown/stimulated amygdala )with limited, disparate short-term memory capacity, including a broken / intentionally corrupted indexing system (cloven hemispheres, minified cortex.)

 

The lost / forsaken key to humanity and human evolution is: the envelope and ...  the human heart!  

 

The heart is the sacred energy source. Accompanied by the 9 sacred endocrines and the vehicle.

 

We are an intentionally, internally divided species!  Not only between the left-logical and right-free-thinking/spiritual hemispheres of the brain but between the brain-etherical communication and the heart-physical existence.

 

Still, we are adapted from a higher life form, which embody a higher form of the trinity complex: vehicle (body / resonator / antenna), heart (power adapter) and brain (CPU)

 

The classic western 'masonic' cathedral pattern was a design to remind all who enter that our primal existence was the [ground] beneath our feet; the marriage or bridge between these two absolute aspects of humanity, intentionally presented in a non-holistic, semi-nurturing way. Though the acolyte was above the chequered floor, he must gaze upward to the apparently unattainable heights of an external God's excessive brilliance, while underneath lay literal crypts, confirming that the vehicle will perish - life is short and humanity should be gracious to the unattainable brilliance for being above the ground, hence the kneeling before the altar.

 

Our current 'gods of science' studying the brain are inherently defective in both their design and their approach to the studies of the brain.  

 

Unless the whole human design is studied, especially the relationship between the brain, heart and nervous system, humanity will never find what they think they are looking for.

 

Whoops, typing out long again...

'Human brain' supercomputer with 1 million processors switched on for first time

Nov. 2, 2018           Jordan Kenny

 

"The world’s largest neuromorphic supercomputer designed and built to work in the same way a human brain does has been fitted with its landmark one-millionth processor core and is being switched on for the first time.

The newly formed million-processor-core ‘Spiking Neural Network Architecture’ or ‘SpiNNaker’ machine is capable of completing more than 200 million million actions per second, with each of its chips having 100 million transistors.

To reach this point it has taken £15million in funding, 20 years in conception and over 10 years in construction, with the initial build starting way back in 2006. The project was initially funded by the EPSRC and is now supported by the European Human Brain Project. It is being switched on for the first time on Friday, 2 November.

The SpiNNaker machine, which was designed and built in The University of Manchester’s School of Computer Science, can model more biological neurons in real time than any other machine on the planet.

Biological neurons are basic brain cells present in the nervous system that communicate primarily by emitting ‘spikes’ of pure electro-chemical energy. Neuromorphic computing uses large scale computer systems containing electronic circuits to mimic these spikes in a machine.

SpiNNaker is unique because, unlike traditional computers, it doesn’t communicate by sending large amounts of information from point A to B via a standard network. Instead it mimics the massively parallel communication architecture of the brain, sending billions of small amounts of information simultaneously to thousands of different destinations.

Steve Furber, Professor of Computer Engineering, who conceived the initial idea for such a computer, said: “SpiNNaker completely re-thinks the way conventional computers work. We’ve essentially created a machine that works more like a brain than a traditional computer, which is extremely exciting.

“The ultimate objective for the project has always been a million cores in a single computer for real time brain modelling applications, and we have now achieved it, which is fantastic.”

“Steve Furber, ICL Professor of Computer Engineering in the School of Computer Science
SpiNNaker completely re-thinks the way conventional computers work. We’ve essentially created a machine that works more like a brain than a traditional computer, which is extremely exciting."

The computer’s creators eventually aim to model up to a billion biological neurons in real time and are now a step closer. To give an idea of scale, a mouse brain consists of around 100 million neurons and the human brain is 1000 times bigger than that.
