Did they name it 'HAL' by any chance?

"The neurosynaptic chip from IBM uses newer architecture as claimed by IBM Research, and therefore would handle dead codes and unruly algorithm in a more effecient manner."

Tirlapur, is it possible? I feel it's difficult to handle the unruly algorithms in a better way ; it can spoil everything.

Since we are talking about IBM Research, we should be given more information on the kind of job these neurosynaptic chips would enable us to do. We can already think super cool things like cyborgs and mind reading robots, but we really must ask ourselves the question if this chip can be used for treating patients of Alzheimer's and other brain diseases.

"It is truly mind boggling to consider the horsepower required on a chip to emulate a small portion of the brain's normal function.  The brain is a amazing machine."

Flyingscot, why you repeated the same comment 06 times; any significance in that.

The brain is an amazing thing when one considers what it takes to emulate it in silicon.
