Brain-Like ‘Neuromorphic’ Computing Could Drive IBM Stock

IBM announced that its researchers have made an important breakthrough in brain-like (“neuromorphic”) computing. The new IBM artificial neurons promise high-density, low-power supercomputing inspired by biological neurons in the brain. Possible applications include ultra-efficient Big Data processing for the IoT, financial analysis, and social media. Technology giants including Alphabet Inc-A (NSDQ:GOOGL) and Facebook (NSDQ:FB) are betting on Artificial Intelligence (AI). Facebook, which is becoming one of the most advanced technology research centers in the world, is developing new applications of AI that, according to the company, will soon begin shaping the ways users interact with computers. Alphabet, after impressing the world with its spectacular AlphaGo demonstration, is beginning to apply AI technology to its commercial cloud computing service. Typical applications of AI, also indicated as cognitive computing or machine learning, include automatic…
