By Dharmendra S. Modha, Ph.D., IBM Research

Building a computer that could match the power of the human brain has long been a goal of scientists. In August, we made a breakthrough, published in Science in collaboration with Cornell Tech, which is a significant step toward bringing cognitive computers to society. We announced that we’ve built a computer chip that functions like a brain does with the ability to sense, taste, feel, smell, hear and understand its surroundings.

The SyNAPSE chip is a neurosynaptic computer chip that is a size of a postage stamp and runs on the energy equivalent of a hearing-aid battery. This technology could transform science, technology, business, government, and society by enabling vision, audition, and multi-sensory applications ... "
