Human Brain Project hits milestone

The Human Brain Project involves 112 partners in 24 countries (Keystone) The European Union’s Human Brain Project (HBP) has ticked off a key early target: the official release of six prototype computing platforms that will allow the global scientific community to perform cutting-edge neuroscience research. The HBP hope the platforms will allow researchers from many fields to share and analyse data collaboratively, leading to the development of maps of brain diseases, digital brain reconstructions across different biological scales, and brain-inspired computing systems. The launch of the platforms marks the end of the HBP’s two-and-a-half-year ramp-up phase, and the beginning of its operational phase, which starts on April 1. Now they are inviting researchers to apply to use and test the platforms.  “The HBP invites scientists everywhere to work with our…
