HIBALL is the new funding umbrella for the BigBrain Project. It aims to transform the successful collaboration between McGill (MNI, BIC) and Forschungszentrum Jülich (INM, JSC) to the next level by reinforcing utilization and co-development of the latest AI and high-performance computing (HPC) technologies for building highly detailed 3D brain models. It establishes a close collaboration with CIFAR and MILA in Canada, and Helmholtz AI in Germany.
