The world’s first human brain-like computer, Darwin Mouse, is developed by Zhejiang University and the Chi Zhejiang Laboratory.

The machine contains 792 second generation Darwin chips developed by Zhejiang University, supporting 120 million nerve impulses and nearly 100 billion synapses (a synapse is a special articulation, through which signals from the nerve cell it passes through another nerve cell), the same number of neurons in the mouse brain. The power consumption of this model is only about 350-500 watts.
The team also developed DarwinOS, an operating system for human brain-like computers that allows for efficient management and coordination.
