Qualcomm’s Neuromorphic Chips Could Make Robots and Phones More Astute About the World | MIT Technology Review

Qualcomm’s Neuromorphic Chips Could Make Robots and Phones More Astute About the World | MIT Technology Review | Science, Technology, and Current Futurism | Scoop.it
Microprocessors configured more like brains than traditional chips could soon make computers far more astute about what’s going on around them.
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "This demonstration at Qualcomm’s headquarters in San Diego looks modest, but it’s a glimpse of the future of computing. The robot is performing tasks that have typically needed powerful, specially programmed computers that use far more electricity. Powered by only a smartphone chip with specialized software, Pioneer can recognize objects it hasn’t seen before, sort them by their similarity to related objects, and navigate the room to deliver them to the right location—not because of laborious programming but merely by being shown once where they should go. The robot can do all that because it is simulating, albeit in a very limited fashion, the way a brain works."
