IBM Research creates new foundation to program SyNAPSE chips | Future set | 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.
