IBM Supercomputer To Guard US Nuclear Weapons

IBM is working on a new supercomputer inspired by the human brain. Experts have long maintained that the human brain is the most powerful supercomputer in the world, and now a team of researchers is building a new, neural network-based supercomputer inspired by the organ, writes Danny Palmer for ZDNet. IBM teams up with nuclear security facility IBM is working in conjunction with the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), a federal government research facility in California. The facility is meant to ensure the safety, security, and reliability of the United States nuclear deterrent. Scientists from the two organizations are working on what they say is a “first of a kind” supercomputing platform inspired by the human brain, which will be used for deep learning. the neural-network will use IBM TrueNorth neurosynaptic…
