IBM cracks open a new era of computing with brain-like chip

IBM cracks open a new era of computing with brain-like chip | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
Scientists at IBM Research have created by far the most advanced neuromorphic (brain-like) computer chip to date. The chip, called TrueNorth, consists of 1 million programmable neurons 256 million programmable synapses spread out across 4096 individual neurosynaptic cores. Built on Samsung's 28nm process and with a monstrous transistor count of 5.4 billion, this is one of the largest and most advanced computer chips ever made. Perhaps most importantly, though, TrueNorth is incredibly efficient: The chip consumes just 72 milliwatts at max load, which equates to around 400 billion synaptic operations per second per watt -- or about 176,000 times more efficient than a modern CPU running the same workload, or 769 times more efficient than other state-of-the-art neuromorphic approaches. Yes, IBM is now a big step closer to building a brain on a chip.

IBM Is Running a Brain Computer On "Electronic Blood"

IBM Is Running a Brain Computer On "Electronic Blood" | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
As part of what we can only assume is preparation for some very intense mad scientist Halloween costumes, IBM has announced a prototype computer that is both powered and cooled by an electrolyte liquid.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

"...IBM, like everyone, is pretty taken with the capacity and energy efficiency of the human brain and wants to try to replicate it. Of course the brain is skull-sized and only uses 20 watts of energy per day, so it's a high bar to try to match, but IBM is hoping that its new "redox flow" system will bring it closer:::"

IBM's Neuro-Synaptic Chip Mimics Human Brain. | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
IBM's new device mimic's the neurons and synapses in the human brain. A new programming paradigm facilitates the development of sensory-based, cognitive computing applications.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

..."IBM is releasing to early adopters a neuro-synaptic computation chip that mimics the neurons and synapses of the brain. This chip is based on a new neuron model developed by IBM researchers.

 

Some of the proposed sensory applications include things like artificial noses, ears, and eyes. IBM has now released the tools for evaluation and is looking for interested developers..."
