Aksarbent's Director of Issue Analysis for
Government and Public Policy, a position
which, at the American Family Association,
is held by Bryan Fischer
IBM, the corporation famous for its wildly popular graphic user interface-based operating system, OS/2, and for Jeopardy and chess stunts, now claims it can simulate the entire brain of a cat using 24,576 processors, each with 1 gig of memory, in some sort of parallel arrangement. The company only needs 512 processors to simulate a mouse brain and 2048 for a rat brain, which AKSARBENT thinks is probably the setup used to think of the name for this project: Blue Gene.
