International Business Machines Corp. Develops Brain-Inspired Supercomputer

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has purchased a new brain-inspired supercomputing platform from IBM, powered by IBM’s TrueNorth neuromorphic chips. Neuromorphic chips are optimized for very high performance at very low power, and suitable for AI and Machine Learning applications. IBM is ahead in the race towards next-generation computing hardware for both supercomputers and mobile devices. Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) has purchased a new brain-inspired supercomputing platform developed by International Business Machines Corp (NYSE:IBM). Based on a breakthrough neurosynaptic computer chip called IBM TrueNorth, the scalable platform will process the equivalent of 16 million neurons and 4 billion synapses while consuming only the energy equivalent of a tablet computer. The brain-like, neural network design of the IBM neuromorphic system is able to run complex cognitive tasks such as pattern recognition…
