Waterloo researchers build the world's largest computerized brain

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

A team of researchers from the University of Waterloo has built the world's largest simulation of a functioning brain, known as Spaun (Semantic Pointer Architecture Unified Network). It can help scientists understand how the complex activity of the brain gives rise to the complex behaviour exhibited by animals, including humans.

Using several disciplines across campus including theoretical neuroscience, systems design engineering and computer science, Spaun was brought to life by lead researcher Chris Eliasmith and his affiliates.
