Humans have the mind power unparalleled to anyone in the universe, provided we are able to unleash its full power as advocated by most scientists. And now, we have the proof.
An Artificial Intelligence project by two PhD students from the University of California, Berkeley, and Carneige Mellon University will be the first of its kind to compare the human brain with the world’s best supercomputers. Elon Musk, whose subsidiary company Tesla’s electric sedan Model P85D recorded insane 103 out of 100 by the Consumer Reports and who is considered as a pioneer in technology entrepreneurship, has funded two for an Artificial Intelligence project.
TEPS or Traversed Edges Per Second is the way to do that. TEPS benchmark requires the supercomputer to simulate a graph and search through it, while for the human brain, they mapped the frequency of electrical signals fired by the neurons.
The scholars compared the power of human brain with IBM’s monster Sequoia supercomputer, that holds the third position in the world’s top 5 powerful supercomputer list. IBM Sequoia supercomputer has a TEPS benchmark record with 2.3 x 1013 TEPS.
Now that means a regular human brain has a worth of about $4,700 to $170,000 per hour in terms of its performance while comparing with the current computer prices for TEPS.
So, what do you think? With the enormous potential untapped in our brains, we still be under control of machines?
