IBM creates computer chip that models human brain.

August 18, 2011

According to Venturebeat,

[IBM has] created the basic design of an experimental computer chip that emulates the way the brain processes information.

IBM’s so-called cognitive computing chips could one day simulate and emulate the brain’s ability to sense, perceive, interact and recognize — all tasks that humans can currently do much better than computers can.

If it takes this much brain power to even begin to replicate a human brain, what are the chances that Mother Nature, i.e. Natural Selection, had in randomly mutating such a powerful computer?

What is slim to none, Alex?
