Mapping Out a New Role for Cognitive Computing in Science

Feb 25, 2016 |

The avalanche of data being produced by experimental instruments and sensors isn’t just a big (data) problem – it’s perhaps the biggest bottleneck in science today. What’s needed, say the distinguished authors of a new white paper from the Computing Community Consortium, is a community-wide agenda to develop cognitive computing tools that can perform scientific Read more…

Brainy IBM Chip Packs One Million Neuron Punch

Aug 7, 2014 |

IBM researchers have developed a super-efficient chip inspired by the functioning of the human brain. Named TrueNorth, the chip features 5.4 billion transistors arranged in a network of 4,096 neurosynaptic cores, yielding the equivalent of one million neurons and 256 million synapses. Despite being one of the largest CMOS chips ever built, TrueNorth consumes just 70mW during Read more…
