Blue Brain

  • Currently they have simulated one column of a neocortex (of a rat) with 10,000 neurons and 30 million synapses using a 22.8 teraflop supercomputer.
    • (A human neocortex column has 60,000 neurons)

quantum computing
Quantum Computing

Dwave

  • DWAVE adiabatic quantum computers could reach 512 to 1000 qubits and performance superior to classical computers in 2008
  • Successful development of quantum computers would accelerate the development of molecular nanotechnology with superior molecular simulation and modeling.

smartphones
Smartphones

Next 10 years….

  • Teraflop+ class smartphones that are constantly charged with gigabit+ connections seems likely.
  • Network to quantum computers and supercomputers of all types for remote processing.
  • Nvidia Tesla multi-teraflop GPGPU's and AMDs GPGPU
