Why is it so hard for computers to understand us and Vice Versa?

  13. 13. © 2015 International Business Machines Corporation Neuromorphic Computing 60% of valuable sensory data loses value in milliseconds Today’s computing systems are challenged to extract real-time actionable information from complex and cluttered sensor data with very low power. Biological systems on the other hand, have evolved to be extremely efficient at making sense of raw sensory information in real time at power levels orders of magnitude smaller than conventional compute. IBM’s SyNAPSE (Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics) Chip – with brain-inspired computer architecture is powered by an unprecedented one million neurons and 256 million synapses. Such differentiated architecture – both in hardware and software – can enable neural computation to be deployed where the sensory data is at the edge, or at massive scale within the cloud.
