How the Human Brain Project will Push Supercomputing

Over at TOP500.org, Bernd Mohr writes that Europe’s Human Brain Project will have a main production system located at the Juelich Supercomputing Centre. “The HBP supercomputer will be built in stages, with an intermediate “pre-exascale” system on the order of 50 petaflops planned for the 2016-18 timeframe. Full brain simulations are expected to require exascale capabilities, which, according to most potential suppliers’ roadmaps, are likely to be available in, approximately 2021-22.”

Cray, Dell, Extoll, IBM & Nvidia to Develop Pilots for Human Brain Project

This week the Jülich Supercomputing Centre announced it is leading the creation of the Human Brain Project’s High Performance Computing (HPC) Platform.
