IBM’s TrueNorth artificial brain to watch, learn from real brains

Posted on 11/14 10:26 in Shows | 0

That sort of pattern finding is something conventional computers are bad at doing, but IBM hopes with new technology it will be able to watch the human brain in real-time — and potentially intervene.The researchers at IBM pointed out the real limiting factor is not computational power, but electrical power.

How neuromorphic ‘brain chips’ will begin the next era in computing

Posted on 09/29 14:23 in Shows | 0

Make no mistake: neuromorphic computing is going to change the world, and it’s going to do it more quickly than you might imagine.Part of the reason a digital computer is more efficient than a human being is its transistors can fire with incredible speed — but so can our neurons.

IBM, US Air Force Are Building a Neuromorphic Supercomputer

Posted on 06/26 15:57 in Shows | 0

The new supercomputer will consist of 64 million neurons and 16 billion synapses, while using just 10W of wall power.Superficially, the two seem similar — brains, like CPUs, receive inputs, perform calculations based on those inputs, and then return a result.
