Are neuromorphic chips helping us replicate the brain?
There is no computer that works as efficiently as the human brain. The scientists’ goals are to build an artificial brain that will work just like the human brain. University of Zurich, Neuroinformatics researchers have made a breakthrough on this goal. They are now understanding how to configure neuromorphic chips that can replicate the brain’s information processing capabilities in real-time. Researchers validate this by creating a synthetic sensory processing system that demonstrates cognitive abilities. Most methods to neuroinformatics are restricted to the progress of neural network replicas on computers that aim to incite complex nerve networks or supercomputers. Only a select few researchers will follow the Zurich researchers’ method to develop electronic circuits that are similar to the brain in terms of size, speed, and energy consumption. A professor at the Institute of Neuroinformatics, Giacomo Indiveri said, “”Our goal is to emulate the properties of biological neurons and synapses directly on microchips.”” (via Are neuromorphic chips helping us replicate the brain?)
