Intel Chip's are getting closer to the human brain
Intel has developed a neuromorphic chip. As the name suggests, a neuromorphic chip mimics the functioning of the neurons and synapses of the human brain. These chips also go a step further and inscribe the work of the neural networks it runs, onto silicon thereby generating a memory. Intel’s device, ‘Loihi’ which it displayed at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, uses the chip to identify objects which are recorded by a webcam. Also, at the show, Intel announced that it is also building a large quantum computing chip which would have the capacity to do computations at tremendous speed.
