This coupled with biological procesors, and the research going into 3d processing could prove to be a deadly effective combination. its about time sombody topled the old designs of processing. Ever hear of the technology curve? were about to shoot straight up!

Tobdec,
It's that "deadly effective" part that worries me. We'll end up with a world monitored and controlled by all these artificial idiots we are about to create with no way of knowing how or why or what they are doing. For sure if it's cheaper than hiring real idiots to do the job it will happen.

If they don't work out they can always sell them as surplus to make toys......

Wow!

Here is the web page of IBM's Dr. Dharmendra Modha, Manager, Cognitive Computing, IBM Research - Almaden. Lots of neat stuff...

That's a cool chip! Certainly opens new doors to better image recognition and processing...


... but I kinda worry about the 'Small Soldiers' thing. Makes me want to rip out the batteries from these action figures if I ever have these! :)
