Impressive results. Early results, still awaiting complete systems using these methods.
IBM shows how fast its brain-like chip can learn
IBM benchmarks the deep-learning capabilities of its TrueNorth brain-like chip and concludes it's faster and more power-efficient than today's GPUs and CPUs
IBM started the development of brain-like chips in 2004 and simulated a computer model the scale of a cat's brain in 2009. A prototype chip in 2011 had 256 digital neurons and had pattern-recognition capabilities. A full computer with a brain-emulating chip could still be a long time off. ...
IBM is also building quantum computer as an option to replace today's PCs and servers, which are based on decades-old computer designs. Other chips that emulate human brains are being developed by Hewlett Packard Enterprise, Stanford University, the University of Heidelberg in Germany, and the University of Manchester in the U.K. ....
