Coding For Brain Chips Gives Cognitive Computing Boost
It's a cognitive leap forward. IBM can now program an experimental chip they unveiled two years ago. The chips, designed to mimic how our brains work, are set to power computers that handle many streams of input data at once much like the sensory input we deal with all the time.IBM's True North computer chips contain memory, processors and communication channels wired up like the synapses, neurons and axons of a brain. A key idea is that the chips can be hooked up into vast grids with many thousands working together in parallel. For certain types of task, such as quickly responding to large amounts of input data from sensors, they are much faster and less power-hungry than standard chips. They could one day replace human reflexes in self-driving cars or power the sensory systems of a robot, for example.
Russian Double-sided Smartphone has Global Ambitions
Russian modern developer Yota Devices has launched its first smartphone on Wednesday 4th Dec 2013, hoping its novel double-sided screen will allow it to break into markets in Europe and the Middle East and gain share from rivals.
Moscow-based Yota Devices plans to sell the phone in 20 countries next year after making its 2013 debut in Russia, Austria, France, Germany and Spain.
Analysts were sceptical, predicting it will struggle to emulate the success of Apple's iPhone or Samsung's Galaxy smartphone.
