SpiNNaker’s spiking neural network mimics the human brain, and could fuel breakthroughs in robotics and health.┬áThe one-million core SpiNNaker — short for Spiking Neural Network Architecture — is the culmination of decades of work and millions of pounds of investment. The result: a massively parallel supercomputer designed to mimic the workings of the human brain, which it’s hoped will give neuroscientists a new understanding of how the mind works and open up new avenues of medical research.
