Hardware / Peripherals / IBM Unveils Microchip Based on Human Brain

IBM Unveils Microchip Based on Human Brain

How to replicate the squishy sophistication of the human brain in hard metal and silicon? IBM thinks it's found a way, and to prove it has built and tested two new "cognitive computing" microchips whose design is inspired by the human brain.



In the mammalian brain, neurons send chemical signals to each other across tiny gaps called synapses. A neuron's long "tail", the axon, sends the signals from its multiple terminals; the receptive parts of other neurons the dendrites collect them.

Each of IBM's brain-mimicking silicon chips is a few square millimetres in size and holds a grid of 256 parallel wires that represent dendrites of computational "neurons" crossed at right angles by other wires standing in for axons. The "synapses" are 45-nanometre transistors connecting the criss-crossing wires and act as the chips' memory; one chip has 262,144 of them and the other 65,536. Each electrical signal crossing a synapse consumes just 45 picajoules a thousandth of what typical computer chips use.

Because the neurons and synapses are so close together, the pieces of hardware responsible for computation and memory are also much closer than in ordinary computer chips. Conventionally, the memory sits to the side of the processor, but in the new chips the memory the synapses and the processors the neurons are on top of each other, so they don't need to use as much energy sending electrons back and forth. That means the chips can perform parallel processing far more efficiently than conventional computers.

In preliminary tests, the chips were able to play a game of Pong, control a virtual car on a racecourse and identify an image or digit drawn on a screen. These are all tasks computers have accomplished before, but the new chips managed to complete them without needing a specialised program for each task. The chips can also "learn" how to complete each task if trained.

Eventually, by connecting many such chips, Dharmendra Modha of IBM Research Almaden, in San Jose, California, hopes to build a shoebox-sized supercomputer with 10 billion neurons and 100 trillion synapses that consumes just 1 kilowatt of power. That may still sound a lot a standard PC uses only a few hundred watts but a supercomputer like IBM's Watson uses hundreds of kilowatts. By contrast, the ultra-efficient human brain is estimated to have 100 billion neurons and at least 100 trillion synapses but consumes no more than 20 watts.

Kwabena Boahen of Stanford University, California, says scale is one of the key issues. Until the chips contain as many synapses as the human brain, it will be difficult to distinguish their accomplishments from those of other computers.

The chips are sponsored by a US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) project to create computers whose abilities rival those of the human brain.

Hardware / Peripherals / Corsair H80 or H60
« on: September 11, 2011, 07:46:06 pm »
Looking for a Corsair H80 or a H60. H80 Comes with 2 fans anyway, so if its an H60, prefer 2 equal fans operating on Push/Pull. Antec H20 920 is also fine. Preferring new units. If anyone has any for sale, please let me know.

Hardware / Peripherals / CPU Voltages / Clock Speeds and Load Temps.
« on: September 02, 2011, 12:15:18 am »
Hello,

I thought of starting up a thread so everyone can post the processors OC levels, coolers, loadtemps and voltages to discussing OC'ing and effective coolers for our room temps.

Lets give this a try, it might work :D.

I ll start it off.

Processor : i7 2600k on Asus Z68.
Clocked @ : 4.5GHz
VCore : 1.296v
CPU Cooler : Hyper 212+
PSU - Seasonic M2II 620w

Idle temp (Tool : Core temp) : 42-45C
Load temp (Prime95 Stress test) : 72 C Max after 3 Hours.

I get different readings on Asus AI Suite,
Idle temp : 33 C
Load temp : 63 C max.

Downloads / DropBox - Online Backup/Sync/File Sharing Tool
« on: August 01, 2010, 11:26:57 pm »

Dropbox is the easiest way to store, sync, and, share files online. There's no complicated interface to learn. You can simply install the dropbox tool, and then select folders that you wish to share or sync.

Give it a try.

Click the link below and "REGISTER". Then "Download The Appcliation". You are ready to go! :)


Dropbox Features
File Sync

Dropbox allows you to sync your files online and across your computers automatically.

    * 2GB of online storage for free (upto 8GB bonus space), with up to 100GB available to paying customers.
    * Sync files of any size or type.
    * Sync Windows, Mac and Linux computers.
    * Automatically syncs when new files or changes are detected.
    * Work on files in your Dropbox even if you're offline. Your changes sync once your computer has an Internet connection again.
    * Dropbox transfers will correctly resume where they left off if the connection drops.
    * Efficient sync - only the pieces of a file that changed (not the whole file) are synced. This saves you time.
    * Doesn't hog your Internet connection. You can manually set bandwidth limits.

File Sharing

Sharing files is simple and can be done with only a few clicks.

    * Shared folders allow several people to collaborate on a set of files.
    * You can see other people's changes instantly.
    * A "Public" folder that lets you link directly to files in your Dropbox.
    * Control who is able to access shared folders (including ability to kick people out and remove the shared files from their computers).
    * Automatically create shareable online photo galleries from folders of photos in your Dropbox.

Online Backup

Dropbox backs up your files online without you having to think about it.

    * Automatic backup of your files.
    * Undelete files and folders.
    * Restore previous versions of your files.
    * 30 days of undo history, with unlimited undo available as a paid option.

Web Access

A copy of your files are stored on Dropbox's secure servers. This lets you access them from any computer or mobile device.

    * Manipulate files as you would on your desktop - add, edit, delete, rename etc.
    * Search your entire Dropbox for files.
    * A "Recent Events" feed that shows you a summary of activity in your Dropbox.
    * Create shared folders and invite people to them.
    * Recover previous versions of any file or undelete deleted files.
    * View photo galleries created automatically from photos in your Dropbox.

Security & Privacy

Dropbox takes the security and privacy of your files very seriously.

    * Shared folders are viewable only by people you invite.
    * All transmission of file data and metadata occurs over an encrypted channel (SSL).
    * All files stored on Dropbox servers are encrypted (AES-256) and are inaccessible without your account password.
    * Dropbox website and client software have been hardened against attacks from hackers.
    * Dropbox employees are not able to view any user's files.
    * Online access to your files requires your username and password.
    * Public files are only viewable by people who have a link to the file(s). Public folders are not browsable or searchable.

Mobile Device Access

The free Dropbox application for iPhone, iPad, and Android lets you:

    * Access your Dropbox on the go.
    * View files from within the application.
    * Download files for offline viewing.
    * Take photos and videos and sync them to your Dropbox.
    * Share links to files in your Dropbox.
    * Export your files to other applications.
    * Sync downloaded files so they're up-to-date.

A mobile-optimized version of the website is also available for owners of Blackberry phones and other Internet-capable mobile devices.

Hardware / Peripherals / DVD-ROM Not Reading CD, But reads DVD.
« on: March 20, 2010, 01:29:28 pm »
I have this Dell branded desktop at home, all of a sudden the dvd-rom stopped reading both dvd's and cd's. I changed the rom, then dvd's started reading, but cd's did not work. I changed to another rom, a dvd-writer this time, still the same issue, dvds reading, but cd's not. I changed the IDE cable, still nothing, tried reinstalling drivers, that didnt help either. Any idea what the problem could be?

Communal Assistance / Keyboard Issue
« on: February 20, 2010, 11:55:42 am »
I ve been having this weird issue for a long time, when I was using Vista, and now when Im on windows 7 as well. So lets get to the point straight.
I have a A4tech keyboard, like 2 years or so old. PS/2 keyboard. When I boot my computer keyboard doesnt work. Numlock light is up, but cant do anything. Cant type password or anything at the login screen. Ok, If I shutdown the computer,stay a while and if I boot again, it still does not work. If I select "Restart" from the shutdown menu and reboot the computer,the next time windows starts keyboard starts working. Its pretty annoying, Any idea whats wrong? :S
