The electronic brain gets closer:

An IBM supercomputer has achieved a new milestone toward DARPA's vision - as called for in its Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE ) program - of developing electronic neuromorphic (brain-simulation) machine technology that scales to biological levels. At the recent Supercomputing 2012 conference , IBM announced it had simulated an unprecedented scale of 2.084 billion neurosynaptic cores containing 53x1010 neurons and 1.37x1014 synapses running only 1542× slower than real time. The DARPA SyNAPSE program ultimately calls for building a cognitive computing architecture with 1010 neurons and 1014 synapses - a number inspired by the estimated number of synapses in the human brain. What IBM has achieved, using its Compass scalable simulator for the company's TrueNorth Cognitive Computing architecture, is not a biologically realistic simulation...
