The Human Brain Project (HBP), a flagship project of the European Union, has just released the initial versions of its six Information and Communications Technology (ICT) platforms to users worldwide.
The six HBP Platforms are:
- Brain Simulation
- High Performance Computing
- Medical Informatics
- Neuromorphic Computing
These platforms enable researchers to use the tools developed by the Human Brain Project to search and analyse neuroscience data, simulate brain sections, run complex simulations, searching of real data to understand similarities and differences among brain diseases, access computer systems that emulate brain microcircuits, and test virtual models of the brain by connecting them to simulated robot bodies and environments.
All the Platforms can be accessed via the HBP Collaboratory, a web portal where users can also find additional information.
