IBM Unveils a 'Brain-Like' Chip With 4,000 Processor Cores

It can recognize objects, understand speech, respond to change. Since the early days of digital technology, scientists have worked to build computers that were more like the three-pound organ inside your head.

Most efforts to mimic the brain have focused on software, but in recent years, some researchers have ramped up efforts to create neuro-inspired computer chips that process information in fundamentally different ways from traditional hardware. This includes an ambitious project inside tech giant IBM, and today, Big Blue released a research paper describing the latest fruits of these labors. With this paper, published in the academic journal Science, the company unveils what it calls TrueNorth, a custom-made "brain-like" chip that builds on a simpler experimental system the company released in 2011.
