SpiNNaker (Spiking Neural Network architecture)which is a collection of million ARM processors that is beleived can simulate the workings of the brain. SpiNNaker is beeing developed under group of british universities which will be help full for medical investigations.
SpiNNaker (Spiking Neural Network architecture) will help neuroscientists, psychologists and doctors to understand ceitical injuries which are very difficult to understand.
“This could ultimately be of great help for patients, for example, who have presented with reading problems caused by strokes or similar brain injuries. Psychologists have already developed neural networks on which they can reproduce the clinical pathologies,”
“They then use these networks to test alternative therapies, to identify which is most effective in treating the patient’s symptoms. At present they are limited in the fidelity they can achieve with these networks by the available computer power, but we hope that SpiNNaker will raise that bar a lot higher.”
with such a great and big collection of processors it will be only able to model 1 % of the human brain which contain 100 billion Neurons with 1,000 million connections.
Neurons which are usually represented by small simple equations are solved in real-time by software running on the ARM processors.
ARM processors solve small simple equations in real time which represent Neurons.
