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.
