IBM Brain Chip: Computers Think; Act like Humans

IBM Brain chip Computers Think like humans

Systems built with these chips won’t be programmed the same way traditional computers are today, a IBM rep said in a press statement. Rather, cognitive computers are expected to learn through experiences, find correlations, create hypotheses, and remember – and learn from – the outcomes, mimicking the brains structural and synaptic plasticity.
IBM has been awarded $21 million dollars from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) to fund the second phase of the initiative, the Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics (SyNAPSE) project.
If successful, SyNAPSE will develop computing systems that are able to make decisions based on collected data, something that is far out of reach for today’s computers. For example, the statement said, a cognitive computer could record and report metrics based on global water levels and issue a Tsunami warning based on its decision making.
