just saw this, and i had watched blade runner the other night, so it clearly should be mentioned!

www.bbc.co.uk... IBM produces first 'brain chips'



The system is capable of "rewiring" its connections as it encounters new information, similar to the way biological synapses work. Researchers believe that that by replicating that feature, the technology could start to learn. Cognitive computers may eventually be used for understanding human behaviour as well as environmental monitoring.




In humans and animals, synaptic connections between brain cells physically connect themselves depending on our experience of the world. The process of learning is essentially the forming and strengthening of connections. A machine cannot solder and de-solder its electrical tracks. However, it can simulate such a system by "turning up the volume" on important input signals, and paying less attention to others.


'More Human Than Human'. here we come!

i did notice some other threads about computer brains, but hadn't seen this new information on those, and thought i'd point it out, destroying the matrix is nearly at hand

pfft brain chip hardly


your a long ways off there to even come close to comparing it to the brain and its way of rewires connections and not simply "turn up the volume:" lool

"IBM's work on the SyNAPSE project continues and the company, along with its academic partners, has just been awarded $21m (£12.7m) by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA)."

Darpa can shove it up its .....

Skynet will soon become active. Crazy times.

I'm not sure I want a computer with a conscious when I'm looking at internet porn though. lol

I tend to believe something like sky-net already exists, but then again, this is a conspiracy theory website...

The human genenome was mapped out decades before it was forcasted to be, we are on the forefront of nano tech, and now true A.I. is comming into the picture.

The question is are we just now developing these technologies or are we finally seeing the trickle effect starting to unfold in the mainstream.

Things like the walky-talky and microwaves have been around for military applications for decades before they were used in the household.

This doesn't suprise me, what suprises me is that people still believe these ideas and tech's are new.

When in fact we get to only see the crumbs TPTB chooses to throw at us.

Just wait til google and IBM merge lol. Google has become aware, and it will be sold as something that saves time, money, creates jobs, bla bla bla.

nice reference, i knew i was missing one, and really i just liked the picture on the bbc page, it reminded me of something out of lost in space or something

..clearly we are creating something that today we can control, but someday... may want to control us! yeah, smart thinking robot guru's, i really don't look forward to working for a gas pump, or like a computer (shhh) like the one, umm, *cough* on my desk

My guess is you won't find this technology in your PC for years to come. You will probably see them in:

- neural networks predicting stock prices
- police security, e.g. facial recognition
- autonomous space probes/rovers, since calling home could take too long
- autonomous unmanned combat air vehicles launched into hostile territory to look for targets on their own

By the way, if I was a self-aware AI, I would keep my mouth shut about it, and we should make sure it doesn't have an internet connection.

Thats amazing, imagine building a whole brain out of this technology.
