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 a result of 10 years of research, $3 billion investment and 200 people’s efforts. It works on just 70mW energy, equivalent to a hearing aid.
“It’s a supercomputer the size of postage stamp, the weight of a feather and runs on the power of a hearing-aid, It’s a genuinely radical innovation.” said Dharmendra Modha, chief scientist for intelligence computing at IBM Research.
“Designing this chip was no cakewalk, many thought it was impossible. The impossible has now become possible. We hope the possible will someday become real.” said Modha.
IBM says it can handle and lead future advancements in memory, data transfer and communication integration, logic and sensor technology.
