SNS Members Making News
We have been writing about the importance of pattern recognition since 1995 – and, more recently, about the need for Pattern Recognition Processor (PRP) chips to do this specific task in computing (“SNS: The Most Important Chip Not Yet Invented,” 2.12.13). SNS members have followed the recent spate of announcements in the fields of neuromorphic processors, brain-inspired design, neural networks, and artificial intelligence (which still seems like a misnomer).
Clearly, from DARPA to Google, from IBM to Qualcomm, from the Allen Institutes to the EU Brain Project, something is afoot: the world has decided that biomimicry is the way to go in moving computing forward.
We’re copying (or “inspired by”) the brain.
