IBM moves a step closer to making AI a reality with phase-change material

News: Brain mimicking technology builds on the idea of neuromorphic computing. IBM has moved a step closer to making artificial intelligence a reality by creating artificial spiking neurons. Developed by using a phase-change material, the work has opened up the possibility of building a neural network for use in AI. The researchers say that artificial neurons have been created that mimic the human brain in the way that they store and process data. What this means is that they will be able to learn unsupervised and essentially act like a brain. The study was published in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, and the breakthrough presents a potentially significant landmark for developing energy-efficient and ultra-dense hardware which is comparable to those seen in biology.
