    IBM Moves Closer to Recreating the Human Brain

    (Page 1 of 3 )

    IBM's research is often in the news, but one of its most recent items is the cause for more excitement than usual. The company was able to create a computer model of a brain -- not a human one, to be sure, but a brain nonetheless. What does this mean? Keep reading.

    It has been the subject of thousands of fiction stories -- humanoid robots capable of speech, thought, movementÖand who knows what else? A topic of sci-fi legend thatís been widely explored in television, film and print, artificial intelligence is fraught with possibilities for some and paranoia for others. Is it the stuff of mere fiction?

    Many scientists say no -- though theyíve been hard-pressed to prove itÖuntil now. IBM is moving closer and closer to the type of artificial intelligence that novelists have written terrifying legends about for many years. On we on the brink of a new, AI-driven age?

    The human brain has often been compared to a machine. This remarkable mass of matter is capable of the most exquisite thought and invention, innovation and creation. And for thousands of years, scientists have tried to study this complex mess of internal tissueÖwithout a whole lot of success.

    In a very strong sense, human begins still donít really understand themselves -- so how could we create anything which could compare? The human brain is still a great mystery, but all that could be changing very soon. Itís possible that we could see a computer capable of mimicking a human brain in our own lifetimes.

    IBM is currently working on a project which could lead to the biggest breakthrough in computer technology to date, a machine which could mirror the power and efficiency of a human brain in many never-before-seen ways. The company is currently predicting that the computer is but ten years away from being reality -- which, really, isnít a date thatís so far away at all.
