You seem to be confused regarding the difference between programming a computer to beat people at Pong (which obviously happened when the Pong console came out) and having a computer learn to do the same thing. That's fine; being confused is fine. Matched with your arrogance, however, and your confusion becomes tiresome.

Say thanks a lot for your time and effort to have put these things together on this blog. Mary and I very much loved your ideas through the articles on certain things. http://www.elektronische-zigarette24.de elektrische Zigarette

So little progress has been made since 1957 and the Perceptron! See the original papers or check out Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perceptron

There are a few morons (managers) who could use a few more neurons. Could these chips be used on the pointy haired boss so he can understand Dilbert the engineer?

That's an interesting implementation there, Ron. I wonder if there is also any overlap there with memristors.

Thanks for this article. I think IBM is on to something big here.

I have just been asked to explain the final sentence in my posting above, there was a typo. It should have read: "However, that path tends to lead to the conclusion that CBRAM might offer a superior solution." I meant the Conducting Bridge RAM, that offers, by electrochemical action the precision to add and remove individual layers of atoms. Without that is the need for melting, high temperatures and high current densities associated with "reset" in conventional PCM. Apologies.

Ok it's just SRAM and CPU, specifically wired, apparently. http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=inside-ibms-cognitive-chip

Implementation aside, why is this any better than any regular (software, hardware or.. FPGA) ANN?

I think I missed something, such as how the neurons are implemented. Phase change? Charge accumulation?
