Few week ago IBM unveiled the TrueNorth chip which is being hailed as the Brain Chip. IBM’s research was published in Science magazine.
The chip is an outcome of 10 years of research study, $3 billion financial investment and 200 people’s efforts. It works on just 70 mW energy, equivalent to a hearing aid.
” It’s a supercomputer the size of postage stamp, the weight of a feather and operates on the power of a hearing-aid, It’s a truly extreme innovation.” said Dharmendra Modha, primary researcher for intelligence computing at IBM Research study.
” Creating this chip was no cakewalk, many believed it was difficult. The difficult has now ended up being possible. We hope the possible will someday become real.” said Modha.
IBM says it can handle and lead future improvements in memory, information transfer and interaction combination, logic and sensor innovation.
