The project will focus first on mapping the neural pathways involved in disease and injury and then on investigating the potential of modulating nerve activity […]

NeuroSynaptic (brain-inspired) Chip by IBM

In 2008, DARPA started a program called SyNAPSE (Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics), with the intention of designing new computing infrastructure based on human biological brains. In April, 2014, engineers at Stanford University announced a circuit board using 16 “Neurocore” chips that together can simulate the capability of one million neurons with billions […]

Cars Without Drivers

Every since the first DARPA Grand Challenge in 2004 that asked autonomous robotic ground vehicles to navigate a 200 mile course over varying terrain, teams of researchers have been working on creating ever improving versions of the car without a driver. Google Cars Drive Themselves, in Traffic – [nytimes.com] Anyone driving the twists of Highway […]
