European Supercomputer to Map Human Brain

European Supercomputer to Map Human Brain

This video gives an overview of JuQueen, a new supercomputer recently unveiled at a research center in Juelich, Germany, which is the fastest supercomputer in Europe, capable of performing quadrillions of calculations per second.

While it is six times faster than its predecessor, JuQueen, a new supercomputer recently unveiled at Jülich Supercomputing Centre in Jülich, Germany, uses one-sixth of the energy. The supercomputer is the fastest in Europe and capable of performing quadrillions of calculations per second. A group of doctors, computer scientists and others will be embarking on a 10-year-long project to use the computer's capabilities to map the entire human brain - from individual cells to large areas of the brain. The video runs 2:20 minutes.
