What a comparison... If my brain is that fast, what's it doing? I don't have time to think about it... I think my brain spends 499,999,999,999,999 calculations persecond thinking about girls.. I don't think they need to spend much on this thing... Unless it's going to daydream about transistors n such... -----Original Message----- From: Neil Palmer [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Monday, November 18, 2002 11:28 PM To: email@example.com Subject: New iSeries model ? US to create 'computer brain' The gap between man and machine narrows today with the announcement that scientists have begun work on the first supercomputer with a processing power equivalent to the human brain. Spencer Abraham, the American secretary of state for energy, will announce a contract with IBM to build two supercomputers one and a half times more powerful than the combined might of the 25 largest existing supercomputers. The machines, made up of 197 refrigerator-sized boxes each weighing one ton, can crunch half a quadrillion - 500,000,000,000,000 - calculations every second, estimated to be the same magnitude of 'thinking capacity' as the human brain.
