Nevertheless, IBM is trying to simulate the human brain with its own cutting-edge supercomputer, called Blue Gene. For the simulation, it used 147,456 processors working in parallel with one another. IBM researchers say each processor is roughly equivalent to the one found in a personal computer, with one gigabyte of working memory.

So configured, Blue Gene simulated 4.5 percent of the brain's neurons and the connections among them called synapses—that's about one billion neurons and 10 trillion synapses. In total, the brain has roughly 20 billion neurons and 200 trillion synapses.

Man, our brains are really unoptimized.
When's that next patch coming?

If this really is how far tech is behind our natural brain.... why can't I solve linear algebra problems in my head in a matter of nano seconds frown.gif

I think it's obvious humans weren't the lead platform. We got saddled with cat ports.

Maybe a million or so years, I hear they are having some problems with the configuration and the evolution process.

Computers are fast, we are smart. They can resolve an algorithm in matter of nanosec, but they cant make u a good samich...

Samich needs a soul put into it, and no mayo...Too bad we cant oc our brains, it will make this simulation even lower if we count our brain's OC potential.

Because computers are built specifically for doing math equations, and nothing else.

We eat, sleep, love, hate, run, walk, tell computers what to do, and more, as well as doing math.

The fact that we can build computers is impressive in it's self.

Quote:
The Dalai Lama, when asked what surprised him most about humanity, answered, “Man. Because he sacrifices his health in order to make money. Then he sacrifices money to recuperate his health. And then he is so anxious about the future that he does not enjoy the present; the result being that he does not live in the present or the future; he lives as if he is never going to die, and then dies having never really lived.”
