IBM Puts Brain On-a-Chip

"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.

I recently received an email from someone we'll call Martin (because that's his name). Martin's message was short and sweet. In its entirety it read: "You need to see this!"
