Simulations on the company's Blue Gene
super computer indicated that the polymers attach the nanomaterials to cell surfaces, increasing the initial signalling process.
Modha carried out a series of increasingly larger and increasingly more complex simulations on the largest Blue Gene
supercomputers IBM has to offer.

Frames with coverslips (volume of 65 ?L).
One of the world's most powerful computers, Blue Gene
, can manage just .002% of that.
Following the success of IBM Deep Blue in the area of chess and IBM Blue Gene
and its utility in mapping the human genome, IBM Watson was set to the task of answering questions posed using natural language.
In May 2013, IBM donated to DOST the Super Computer Blue Gene
for use, among others, in weather applications computing.
, the high-performance computer built by IBM in 2004 for solving genetic analysis problems, could assemble as many as 65,000 individual processors to reach computational powers in the hundreds of trillions of operations per second.
To bring all the pieces of the puzzle together, Markram and his team have devised a way of gathering all relevant data about the encephalon from around the globe using a supercomputer called Blue Gene
. The powerful machine housed at the EPFL campus in Ecublens, is like a huge sponge that absorbs all this information from existing open-access databases published papers and experiment results.
Used by the US National Nuclear Security Administration, IBM's Blue Gene
Protoype 2 achieved 2,097 MFLOPS (millions of floating-point operations per second) per watt, a measure of the amount of computing power it generated per watt of power consumed.

IBM will analyse the results using 'Blue Gene
', the world's second-fastest supercomputer.
