maybe we will get decent AI in a war game lol

quote:

IBM has developed a microprocessor which it claims comes closer than ever to replicating the human brain.

The system is capable of "rewiring" its connections as it encounters new information, similar to the way biological synapses work.

Researchers believe that by replicating that feature, the technology could start to learn.

Right now it's little more than a attempt at a prof of concept project, sort of like the laser gun who's parts that were just sold on e-bay after millions of wasted tax dollars. Somebody else in Europe tried to make a computer brain in chip years ago, it failed after millions spent. This just another way to get millions more of tax players money for defense money research. The issue is still software not hardware, hell nobody can even make very good multi-tasking software for the 4-8 multiprocessors we have today in computers. We could double or triple the speed of operating systems/games/applications if we could write software that didn't waste all of the cycles of processors we have today. This might lead to more efficient processing of information but it's not a self-learning brain on a chip! It's been said many times, if we could just give computers the intelligence of a fruit fly, computing/AI would advance a 1000 fold overnight.

Maybe that's true Pad, but successes come from past failures. It's a learning process.

Or they may start and fail to a dead end, contibuting little no matter how ahead of their time they are. Like Babages analytical engine which would have worked, yet contributed little to the evolution of data processing. But we don't know so maybe this is the one... the birth of skynet.

Dang ! Beat me to it with the Skynet reference.

We already have Skynet. Its selling off our shares and making us all broke.
Then cyber-accountants will take over the earth.
