    I don't know many details on the IBM chip yet, but another interesting project is Spinnaker, headed up by Manchester Uni's Prof. Steve Furber.

    http://apt.cs.man.ac.uk/projects/SpiNNaker/

    It's effectively a whole lot of chips, each with a bunch of ARM cores, and a network topology and messaging protocol that mimics neurological behaviour.

    Re: News - IBM unveils chips that emulate the human brain

    I used an artificial neural network in my MEng project, but this stuff is a bit different - rather than simulating neural networks in software, it's architecting hardware that behaves in the same or a similar way.

    This is interesting, because if we can truly exploit neural network-based architectures, then we can make things supermassively parrallel and pretty much completely asynchronous... which would be nice.
