Researchers at Western Sydney University in Australia have developed a supercomputer called DeepSouth that is capable of mimicking the human brain. Researchers have simulated the biological processes of the human brain with the help of a neuromorphic system that is capable of performing 228 trillion synaptic operations per second. This is almost similar to the rate at which the human brain performs operations. While other supercomputers consume a lot of power, DeepSouth is specially designed to function like neural networks in the human brain and can operate in a highly efficient manner with less power. Through this device, researchers hope to understand the computational abilities of the human brain.
