Google Puts Its Virtual Brain Technology to Work

Google Puts Its Virtual Brain Technology to Work: ...Google engineers published results of an experiment that threw 10 million images grabbed from YouTube videos at their simulated brain cells, running 16,000 processors across a thousand computers for 10 days without pause.

"Most people keep their model in a single machine, but we wanted to experiment with very large neural networks," says Jeff Dean, an engineer helping lead the research at Google. "If you scale up both the size of the model and the amount of data you train it with, you can learn finer distinctions or more complex features."
