Brain Chips ๐Ÿง ๐Ÿช

on

IBM is in on the AI chip game, but they’re doing it a bit differently. They’re recreating the brain in silicon, literally. ๐Ÿง 

They’ve essentially recreated synapses in microelectronic form, something that has been historically very difficult. Why does this matter if GPUs and software are doing such a good job? ๐Ÿ‘‡

They found the system to be as accurate as a software-based deep neural network even though it consumed only 1 percent as much energy.

Saving energy is always a good thing, but this would also open the door for AI on small devices. Edge FTW! ๐Ÿ™Œ

It’s still early days so only time will tell if this chip is the real deal. โŒ›๏ธ
