Although we have long been talking about computers as artificial brains, actually it has always been a metaphor. Although less and less. IBM has managed to implement a system of 500 artificial neurons with phase change technology they want to simulate the performance of organic brains. In a way that never before had gotten.
For years, scientists have tried to imitate the versatile computing capabilities of neurons. Today, it seems that is the only way to take a step beyond artificial intelligence projects that are underway and that promise to change the world.
