Scientists at China's Zhejiang University and Zhejiang Laboratory said they have created the world's largest neuromorphic computer, which reportedly hosts 120 million artificial neurons and 100 billion synapses, equivalent to those in the brain of an actual mouse.

The Darwin Mouse computer uses 769 Darwin 2 Neural Processing Units, with each processor supporting up to 150,000 neurons.

The team also developed the computer's DarwinOS neuromorphic operating system.

Zhejiang University's Pan Gang said, "We hope we'll be able to continue developing the Darwin series of brain-like computers in the direction of human intelligence, just like biological evolution, and provide stronger artificial intelligence with ultra-low power consumption."
