ISC13 dedicated a special session to probe the thinking behind Europe’s Human Brain Project. We asked Prof. Felix Schürmann of EPFL to tell us about the usage of HPC resources in the Human Brain project and to tell us what this project means to HPC in Switzerland.
Neuroscience to Benefit from Hybrid Supercomputer Memory To handle large amounts of data from detailed brain models, IBM, EPF Lausanne, and ETH Zurich are collaborating on a new hybrid memory strategy for supercomputers. This will help the Blue Brain Project and the Human Brain Project achieve their goals. June 12, 2013 – by EPF Lausanne, […]
by Julie Lynton On Tuesday June 18, a session on “Supercomputing & Human Brain Project – Following Brain Research & ICT on 10-Year Quest” will be held in Leipzig, Germany at the ISC’13. According to the ISC website, the session will be the first of a yearly series dedicating to the Human Brain Project, “presenting […]
The Human Brain Project, recently awarded a 10 year grant by the EU Commission, will pull together all our existing knowledge about the human brain and to reconstruct the brain, piece by piece, in supercomputer-based models and simulations. In a special session at the 2013 International Supercomputing Conference, scientists working on the Human Brain Project […]
Source: Mediacom EPFL More and more data churned out by even more powerful supercomputers. Science has entered the era of “Very Big Data”. But what for, exactly? Neuroscience, physics, climatology, human and social sciences… Science depends increasingly on gigantic quantities of data. How do we manage and exploit it all? What kind of results can […]
