According to the publication TechXplore, IBM, together with the research laboratory of the U.S. air force began the work of building the world's first neuromorphic computing systems. The new system will be artificial intelligence, which will operate according to the principles of real neural networks, like the work of the neural networks of the human brain.
The System has received the name of North Neurosynaptic System, and will form its basis, according to representatives of IBM, several compute nodes, each with 64 neuromorphic processor IBM North. Each node consists of a 64 million artificial neurons and 16 billion artificial synapses.
New artificial intelligence system North Neurosynaptic System will be extremely flexible platform. She will be able to process data coming from different sources and to make parallel processing of the same source data flow. According to the authors,
«Each core North will be part of a single distributed neural network, which will operate on the basis of occurring in the system events. It turns out that each of the chips will not need the clock generator, unlike the traditional processing blocks. Thus when one of the processors fails, the rest of the neural network continues its work. It is worth saying that each core North in maximum performance mode consumes just 10 Watts of energy. The IBM Neurosynaptic system North System will be able to effectively do real-time conversion data, such as images, video or audio obtained from different sources».
growth in the demand for the increase in computing power is forcing manufacturers to invent new methods of calculation.
last month, the humanity lost an important battle with artificial intelligence — then AlphaGo beat the champion in th Ki Jae with the score 3:0.
