New breakthrough in artificial intelligence

BM 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 for memory applications for over a decade, and our progress in the last 24 months has been remarkable,” said IBM Fellow Evangelos Eleftheriou. “In this period,…
