IBM takes another step towards to brain-like computing
Researchers at IBM have developed a programming model for its theoretical chip architecture based on the functions of the brain
IBM has today claimed a significant breakthrough in what it calls “cognitive computing” - the development of fundamantel computing components that mimic the functions of the brain. Back in 2011, the IT giant said that it had successfully built a simulation of a theoretical chip architecture based on brain’s system of neurons and synapses. In conventional computers, memory and processing are handled by separate components. In IBM’s theoretical chip architecture, these functions are performed by a network of simulated neurons and synapses. This, the company claims, will allow computers to process large volumes of sensory data input much more efficiently than is possible today. “Increasingly, computers will gather huge quantities of data, reason over the data and learn from their interactions with information and people,” wrote Dr Dharmendra S. Modha, principal investigator and senior manager at IBM Research. “These new capabilities will help us penetrate complexities and make better decisions about everything from how to manage cities to how to solve confounding business problems.
