A team from California’s Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) is tasked with creating a supercomputer that can watch over the safety, security and reliability of the United States nuclear arsenal and, along with IBM, is hoping to create the first-ever brain-inspired supercomputing technology for deep learning. The team’s neural network will…
