"with the eventual goal of achieving human brain-sized systems of 100 trillion synapses or more."

 

I love this line in the article simply because as it stands right now this chip already has 1000 times the brain power of every United States politician combined, simply amazing!

With brain-sized power in a low-power package maybe we can "augment" some of those who need more "smarts."

The comment about chip versus the politicians is not correct!  You must be talking about USA politicans who have no brains at all. Vote for Netanyahu or Hero Putin if you want brains and action!  IBM and Apple will change the way computing occurs at the personal level. Great going IBM!!

LeCun makes some good points but he also says "would be capable" which indicates to me that his design is not a reality yet.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
