IBM Research creates new foundation to program SyNAPSE chips

IBM Research creates new foundation to program SyNAPSE chips | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

Scientists from IBM unveiled on Aug. 8 a breakthrough software ecosystem designed for programming silicon chips that have an architecture inspired by the function, low power, and compact volume of the brain.
The technology could enable a new generation of intelligent sensor networks that mimic the brain’s abilities for perception, action, and cognition.
Dramatically different from traditional software, IBM’s new programming model breaks the mold of sequential operation underlying today’s von Neumann architectures and computers.
It is instead tailored for a new class of distributed, highly interconnected, asynchronous, parallel, large-scale cognitive computing architectures.

Chip breakhtroughs are most important in getting our progress meters revving faster for all areas of technology. The benefits of the faster processing of date and/or the faster processing of complex control routines are enormnous.

Vědci z IBM představili průlomový software "ekosystemu" určený pro programování křemíkových čipů.

Tato technologie by mohla umožnit novou generaci inteligentních senzorových sítí, které napodobují mozkové schopnosti jako je vnímání, učení a činnost. V budoucnosti už nebude místo pro obyčejný mozek bez využití této a futurističtější technologie.

Global Information Technology Report 2013

Global Information Technology Report 2013 | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

The Global Information Technology Report 2013, the 12th in the series, analyses the impact and influence of ICTs on economic growth and jobs in a hyperconnected world. Read the full news release for more information.
At the core of the report, the Networked Readiness Index (NRI) measures the preparedness of an economy to use ICT to boost competitiveness and well-being.
The report highlights the lack of progress in bridging the new digital divide – not only in terms of developing ICT infrastructure but also in economic and social impact. Despite rapid adoption of mobile telephony, most developing economies lag behind advanced economies due to environments that are insufficiently conducive to innovation and competitiveness. On the other hand, the report shows the progress that countries are making to fully use ICT to boost higher productivity, economic growth and quality jobs in the current economic environment. Finally, the report reveals an apparent investment threshold in ICT, skills and innovation beyond which return on investment increases significantly.

Google Is Obsessed With Building the Star Trek Computer

Google Is Obsessed With Building the Star Trek Computer | Tracking the Future | Scoop.it

Google’s Star Trek machine will be so good that you’ll ask it a question and expect a correct answer at least twice a day. “And in five years you won’t believe you ever lived without it. You’ll look back at today’s search engine and you’ll say, ‘Is that really how we searched?’"
