IBM reaches breakthrough in artificial intelligence

Phase-change neurons: A chip with large arrays of phase-change devices that store the state of artificial neuronal populations in their atomic configuration. Image: IBM Latest News IBM has brought artificial intelligence (AI) one step closer to reality by creating technology that imitates the brain’s neurons. The company’s scientists have created randomly spiking neurons using phase-change materials to store and process data, which is a “significant step forward in the development of energy-efficient, ultra-dense integrated neuromorphic technologies for applications in cognitive computing,” according to the company. These artificial neurons are able to mimic the human brain in the way that they store and process data, and like an actual brain, they use little energy. Until now, achieving this has been a significant challenge for scientists. “We have been researching phase-change materials…
