Intel Debuts Loihi Self-Learning AI Chip That Mimics Human Brain Mechanics

09/26/2017 7:37 PM

How long before we see multi-core AI chips?

..."As the earlier image shows, Loihi looks like a standard chip on the outside (or at least, it does in its current "test iteration"), but under the hood, there's a secondary chip in addition to the primary CPU, which is used to accelerate AI workloads. NVIDIA's Tesla V100 has a similar design, with its additional Tensor processor.

Intel says that its Loihi chip comprises 130,000 neurons and 130 million synapses, and that it's built on the company's 14nm process, which is probably no surprise. In the first half of 2018, Intel plans to seed the chip to leading university and research institutions that focus on AI. So while the chip is effectively unveiled today, it's going to be some time before we see the fruits of Intel's labor."...

God forbid that it mimics some human's brains I could mention.

That could run anywhere from two brain cells and one synapse to a billion synapses with no brain cells.

You better bite that tongue, or remember that when you point at someone, there are four three more pointing right back at ya!

That is not counting any lost digits.

Mimic the human brain?!?!

Uhg. So, its going to take, what? Like two decades to load the operating system and get it working properly?
