Thomas Lippert on Why the Human Brain Project Needs HPC and Data Analytics Infrastructures

In this video from the Neuroinformatics 2015 Conference, Thomas Lippert from Jülich presents: Why Does the Human Brain Project Need HPC and Data Analytics Infrastructures? HBP, the human brain project, is one of two European flagship projects foreseen to run for 10 years. The HBP aims at creating an open neuroscience driven infrastructure for simulation and big data aided modeling and research with a credible user program. “The goal of the HBP is to progressively understand structure and functionality of the human brain, strongly based on a reverse engineering philosophy. In addition, it aims at advancements in digital computing by means of brain inspired algorithms with the potential to create completely novel analogue computing technology called neuromorphic computing. The HBP simulation and data analytics infrastructure will be based…
