The summary from
"Artificial Development claims to have developed a working "Autonomous Cognitive Model" (ACM) based on the human cortex. They say this AI has a
persona named "Kjell" (after one of Alan Turing's lovers) and was activated in late June. Kjell is said to have a working frontal cortex, motor,
and somatosensory areas but does not yet have visual or auditory cortex areas. The hippocampus, basal ganglia and thalamic systems are also "under
development". The system is composed of 20 billion neurons capable of 20 trillion connections. It runs on a Linux-based hardware cluster of 500
dual-CPU nodes with a total of 1 terabyte of RAM and 200 terabytes of storage. They claim the system is 10,000 times larger than any previous attempt
at creating AI and rivals the complexity of mammalian brains."
The original press release:
Hmmnnn... think about what this means in terms of military robots and system monitoring.
