Abstract:
The simulation of the behavior of the human brain is one of the most important challenges in the recent history of computing, with a large number of practical applications. The main constraint is to simulate efficiently a huge number of neurons using current computer technology. One of the most efficient ways in which the scientific community attempts to simulate the behavior of the human brain consists of computing the next three major steps: The computing of 1) the voltage on neuron morphology, 2) the synaptic elements in each of the neurons, and 3) the connectivity between neurons. In this work, we focus on the first step, which is one of the most time-consuming steps of the simulation. Also, it is strongly linked with the rest of steps. All these steps must be carried out on each of the neurons (between 50 and 100 thousand million of neurons in the human brain), which are completely different among them in size and shape.

Abstract:

The attendees can learn about how the behavior of Human Brain is simulated by using current computers, and the different challenges which the implementation has to deal with. We cover the main steps of the simulation and the methodologies behind this simulation. In particular we highlight and focus on those transformations and optimizations carried out to achieve a good performance on NVIDIA GPUs.
