Human Brain Project: Pilot Systems for Interactive Supercomputer

Human Brain Project: Pilot Systems for Interactive Supercomputer The Jülich Supercomputing Centre has begun operation of two new pilot systems for an interactive supercomputer. The systems – JULIA, created by Cray, and JURON from IBM and NVIDIA – are specifically designed for applications in the neurosciences. The installation and test phase are part of a special procurement for the European Human Brain Project.  The development of an interactive supercomputer for the Human Brain Project (HBP) is making progress. Two consortia have installed their respective proposed solutions at the Jülich Supercomputing Centre (JSC), where Jülich scientists and their colleagues from the HBP will now test how powerful the two systems are and how well they fulfil the desired functions. For this purpose, they are using simulation software such as NEST, which…
