As it became known, the company IBM managed to create a cat brain emulator. Work on this project has been underway for about a year, and now the first results have been announced.
The announcement was made at a supercomputing conference in Portland, Oregon. The emulator was launched on a 147456-processor supercomputer Blue Gene/Pequipped with 144 TB of RAM. But despite all this fantastic performance, the emulator is not capable of working in real time. So far, he has only been able to model some aspects of the actual neural interactions that occur in the cat's brain. His reaction is 83 times slower. But do not smile, because this system has to emulate the work of 0.9 * 10^9 neurons and 0.9 * 10^13 synapses!

But the company is not going to stop there. It is expected that by the year 2018 it will also be possible to create a human brain emulator. Although, even then it will be too early to talk about artificial intelligence.
As you know, engine power is measured in horsepower. You look in the future, the computing power of supercomputers will be measured in the intelligence of cats.
