A Skeptical Reaction To IBM’s Cat Brain Simulation Claims

November 24th, 2009 11:49 admin

kreyszig writes “The recent story of a cat brain simulation from IBM had me wondering if this was really possible as described. Now a senior researcher in the same field has publicly denounced IBM’s claims.” More optimisticaly, dontmakemethink points out an “astounding article about new ‘Neurogrid’ computer chips which offer brain-like computing with extremely low power consumption. In a simulation of 55 million neurons on a traditional supercomputer, 320,000 watts of power was required, while a 1-million neuron Neurogrid chip array is expected to consume less than one watt.”
