IBM TrueNorth Neurosynaptic Computers : Disruptive Information Technology

6 Million Synthetic Neurons, 4 Billion Fabricated Synapses, 50 Petabytes of Data, 300 Petaflops on 2.5w of Power

Inspired by biological naturally occurring intelligence, neurosnynaptic processors will pave the way AI engines like SIRI hosted locally on handheld thinking smartphone computers!

A cultural reference to personal AI robot assistants can be seen in science fiction. The opening sequence of the movie Man of Steel shows superman's parents on planet Krypton, where a floating AI robot with a mechanical 3D screen and speech alerts superman parents of the incoming fleet accompanying general Zod, because superman father stole the's genome index to save the genetic future of his people, infusing it into superman's DNA before launching baby superman into space towards earth. That little AI robot referred to as Kelex ("Key Lix") is emblematic of what IBM TrueNorth technology will do in the lives of real people like you and me :) The sequence is a beautiful depiction of the salvation of life from a self destructing planet. I see that humans are destroying the biosphere of earth, and find a sick reflective thread of parallel ideologies between the fictional destruction of Krypton and the industrial destruction of life on Earth!

The next generation of disruptive AI will come hosted on IBM TrueNorth computer processors, with data image presence held in large format high speed memory compute devices called X Point drives developed by partnership between Intel and Micron!

The future of IT lives in biologically inspired data handling technology! Good work IBM and Kudos to all of you at Intel and Micron ^^

Drones that can sense people, the environment, birds, other aircraft, wires, trees, obstacles, there is already a growing body of technologies aimed at allowing drones to auto-pilot themselves using 14nm Intel action with Real Sense.

The Neurosynapic chip will give future drone super intelligence. Not only will cars drive themselves more fluidly with greater safety and efficiency that would ever be possible through a human pilot/ driver, the AI enabled by the neurosynaptic chip will give rise to singularity.

Singularity will be technology disruptive to all sectors in a positive way, enabling ubiquitous surveillance, the end of cancer, the next generation of mobil super computing. Computation fluid dynamics today is held back by the teraflop performance of super computers. Using the same amount of power on a farm of connected neurosynaptic computers will produce billions of times more computational power. We are talking about a complete pardigm change in information technology across all sectors enabled by IBM TrueNorth!

As Intel marches forward to 10nm then 7nm, then skipping electrons for photos in optical Raman emission laser computers, the neurosynamic chip technology leap frogs past these Van Neumann architectures. We are talking about making science fiction possible immediately with neurosynaptic computer artificial intelligence deep knowledge technology.

Today there are AI engines and architectures hosting on ecosystems of connected server cloud computer hardware like Microsoft Azure which supports Cortana. Amazon has their infrastructure hosting Echo, Google has Google Now, and Apple hosts Siri! These natural language processing AI engines are the grandparents of what Neurosynaptic computers will host in the future.

We are talking about hosting a whole instance of IBM Watson on a cell phone size power platform with a neurosynaptic CPU doing the magic. With next generation 5G cellular networks, the gigabit mobile bandwidth will be there to support such functionality without huge locally hosted data libraries on the phone. In this way the phones will always rely on server cloud infrastructure for the big data, in downloadable slices related to the workflow task being performed by the AI on demand per request from the user.
