Researchers Deploy GPUs to Build World's Largest Artificial Neural Network

NVIDIA today announced that it has collaborated with a research team at Stanford University to create the world's largest artificial neural network built to model how the human brain learns. The network is 6.5 times bigger than the previous record-setting network developed by Google in 2012. Computer-based neural networks are capable of "learning" how to model the behavior of the brain -- including recognizing objects, characters, voices and audio in the same way that humans do.
