Copying the brain

Crunching data faster and faster is what computer industry has been doing over the last 60 years, tracking with amazing precision Moore’s law. Since 2014/2015 Moore’s Law has reached its limit, first in the economics (the price per transistor is no longer decreasing) and then in density (we can no …

Towards a true symbioses

An Aston University led consortium has won a funding of 3.5 M€ from the European Commission to explore the possibility of using natural neurones (and neurones networks) in conjunction with silicon chips to improve computation resulting in artificial intelligence. Now, this goal is not just ambitious, it is in the …

Loihi is upping its “neurones” to 8 million

Several years ago, at the beginning of this decade, researchers started to look into computer architectures that would mimic the neuronal networks we find in our brain, in particular networks where storage and computation was one and the same. DARPA launched the project SyNAPSE to foster the creation of neuromorphic …

AI is becoming a marketing word and it’s a pity -III

The impressive evolution of artificial intelligence, evaluated in terms of areas of application and of its increasing “smartness”, is,  mostly, the result of an increased  processing power and an increased access to data. This represents, as previously mentioned, a departure from the idea of finding the key to intelligence in …

Towards a Bionic Eye II

In the previous post I considered some recent advances that help in repairing the “optical part” of the eye”. More challenging is fixing the sensorial part, the retina. In the last decade results have been achieved in both epiretinal and subretinal implant. The former are easier to implant (the surgery …

Portable neural network devices

I remember, it was a long time ago, the discussion on the advantage of going digital in sound coding (and then reproduction) and we actually ended up with digital winning hands down in all the music sector. Still a number of people resisted the idea claiming that analogue remained better …
