IBM / DARPA SyNAPSE announce new brain simulation
By the end of 2009, IBM has announced the development of a brain simulation (machine simulation of cognitive activities) that approximates the complexity of a cat brain.
The Blue Brain Project, headquartered in Lausanne, Switzerland, is an international research venture to reverse-engineer the brain and enable next-generation fundamental and medical research through simulation. BBP is now seeking for immediate hire a Postdoctoral Researcher in Neuron Modeling, for immediate hire, to strengthen the project’s computational neuroscience team and to prepare it for the next steps of growth.
Postdoctoral positions are currently available in the laboratory of Philip Sabes in the Keck Center for Integrative Neurobiology at UCSF.
