    Mail Online: Scientists to build 'human brain': Supercomputer will simulate the entire mind
    Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Monday, April 16, 2012


    An article by Tamara Cohen:

    "Our brains have 100 billion neurons. Each one performs billions of 'calculations' per second – roughly similar to a desktop computer. So the brain computer will need to be able to do a billion billion calculations which will require the output of a nuclear power station. Finding a way to power the supercomputer will be one of the researchers' major challenges."
