A New Brain-Like Chip from IBM Making Devices Last Longer

New Brain-Like Chip from IBM

IBM, a big tech company, has revealed that they’ve created a special brain-like chip that works like a brain and could make AI systems use less energy. This is important because the big buildings that house AI computers make a lot of pollution, and IBM wanted to fix that.

This new chip made by IBM could make AI chips for phones use less energy. Right now, phones with AI use up their batteries quickly. The chip works kind of like the connections in a human brain. A scientist named Thanos Vasilopoulos from IBM in Switzerland explained this.

Regular computers need a lot of power, but the human brain is really good at doing things and doesn’t use much power. This new chip from IBM is better at saving energy, so it can do bigger and harder tasks without using too much power. This is good for things like cars, phones, and cameras that need to save energy. Also, the chips can help big computer places use less energy and pollute less.

Most computer chips use 0s and 1s to remember things, but IBM’s chip uses something called memristors. These are like parts in nature and can remember different numbers. A smart person named Professor Ferrante Neri from a university talked about how memristors are like how a brain works. Lots of memristors together make a brain-like network.

Using this new chip is a good idea, but it’s not easy to make. There are problems like the stuff to make it costs a lot and it’s hard to put together. But the new chip can still work with the AI systems we already have.

IBM thinks this new chip could help phones and cars be better. They could use less energy and work longer.
