The platform can process the equivalent of 16 million neurons and 4 billion synapses while consuming as much energy as your average tablet, per the press release. It will be used to help the National Nuclear Security Administration’s (NNSA) with cybersecurity and stewardship of the U.S.’s nuclear deterrent and non-proliferation operations.
