Interesting, there are some neural processors being made. My father is designing a new processor and he has taken an interest in neural processing. The brain is extremely complex and far from being understood last I heard.
Neural processors are merely based on the way we understand the brain works. There is a lot of blank space that is filled based on existing technology.
|Hoewel de simulatie maar een miniem fragment van het muizenbrein besloeg, bleek de opdracht een behoorlijke aanslag op de rekenkracht van Blue Gene, die over 4096 processors met elk 256MB geheugen beschikte |
The above is incorrect. Each processor unit is dual core (PowerPC 440) and contains 2 MB of on-die cache. Each processor enclosure (rack) contains 4096 processors.
Blue Gene/L consists of 65,536 processors (16 enclosures for those that are interested).
