Supercomputer Tianher-1A
Its name is Tianhe-1A, is located in Tianjin (China) and can execute 2.507 petaflops, that is equivalent to 2.507.000.000.000.000.000 floating point operations per second. Is, therefore, the computer that execute more operations with decimals per second, this doesn't implies that is the more fast in the world, as others say, but is the more fast making this kind of operations.

The technological singularity it can be defined as a moment in the future where we will create an intelligence with the capacity to make another that surpass itself, at the same time, this new intelligence could do the same. This fact would trigger an exponential increment of intelligence and technology until the infinite, surpassing our intelligence and all our technology. If this happens our live would change in a totally unpredictable way. Show more of "The Blue Brain project and the technological singularity"
