New Computer Programming Language Imitates The Human Brain

New Computer Programming Language Imitates The Human Brain | Hanson Zandi News | Scoop.it
As we pointed out earlier this week, we’re still far from being able to replicate the awesome power of the human brain.
Hanson Zandi's insight:

Researchers from IBM are working on a new software front-end for their neuromorphic processor chips to help imitate the brain. The company is hoping to draw inspiration from its recent successes in “cognitive computing,” a line of R&D that’s best exemplified by Watson, the Jeopardy-playing AI. The new programming language will be necessary because once IBM’s cognitive computers become a reality, they’ll need a completely new one to run them. Many of today’s computers still use programming derived from FORTRAN, a language developed in the 1950s for ENIAC.
