  • 1.  Human Brain  What is Blue Brain Project ?  What is the Aim of developing it ?  What is a Virtual Brain ?  How is it possible?  Building a virtual brain  Computer hardware / Supercomputers  Advantages & Disadvantages  Conclusion
  • 2.  immensely powerful energy efficient  self-learning  self-repairing computer.
  • 3. It gets deceases which leads to death… Short term memory Memory power decreases with age increasing…
  • 4.  When?  Why the name BLUE BRAIN ?  What is the purpose ?
  • 5. To gain a complete understanding of the brain and to enable better and faster development of brain disease treatments.
  • 6. Virtual brain is an artificial brain, which can act as the human brain. Intelligence is the inborn quality that cannot be created. What if we upload ourselves into computer, we were simply aware of a computer, or maybe, what if we lived in a computer as a program?
  • 7. Nanobots We only know the media and contents. Methods Invasive Non- invasive
  • 9. The primary software used –NEURON Workflow :: -Emergent properties are seen that require larger and larger networks. -To build a generalized simulation tool, - To couple the brain simulations to all environments -To be able to understand and reproduce human consciousness. BBK-SDK
  • 10. Example NEURON cell builder window
  • 11. RTNeuron :: the primary application for visualization of neural simulations. RTNeuron takes the output from other simulations and renders them into 3D. Multi scaled visualizations rendering individual neurons of a whole cortical column. RTNeuron visualization of a neuron
  • 12. Blue Gene Supercomputer Commodity PC Clusters JuQUEEN Supercomputers DEEP exascale computers
  • 13. Blue Gene/P technical specifications: 4,096 quad-core nodes (16,384 cores in total) Total: 56 teraflops, 16 terabytes of memory 4 racks, GPFS parallel file system Operating system: Linux SuSE SLES 10 Public front and processing log When and by whom? Presently ranked above 500
  • 14. Specifications: 11 node cluster, 3.47 GHz processors (Intel Xeon X5690) 24 GB RAM, 3 Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 GPUs Full-HD passive stereo display connected to two GPUs on head node Visualization purpose
  • 15. Current performance ~ 1.6 petaflops World's 8th fastest supercomputer. Aims to develop a three-dimensional, realistic model of the human brain. JuQUEEN supercomputer in Germany
  • 16. Exascale supercomputer 100 petaflops Will be built using Intel MIC 1 exaflops of performance required for a complete human brain simulation DEEP cluster-booster architecture
  • 17. Remembering things without effort. Using intelligence beyond life. Making decisions without the presence of a person. Animals thoughts can also be analyzed. It would allow the deaf to hear via direct nerve stimulation, and also be helpful for many psychological diseases.
  • 18. More dependent upon the computer systems. Others may use technical knowledge against us. Computer viruses will pose an increasingly critical threat. The real threat, however, is the fear that people will have of new technologies.
