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.

Turing Learning breakthrough: Computers can now learn from pure observation

Posted on 08/30 19:03 in Shows | 0

This new learning process is called Turing Learning because it basically puts a very simple version of this pass-fail differentiation test into practice, over and over again.(As an aside, yes, the “model” swarm should really be the one that is used as the model, but whatever.
