Global Technology – December 2013
Next, let's focus on this month's most important advances in technology, starting with a breakthrough in artificial intelligence.
When compared to the human brain, even the world's best supercomputers are staggeringly inefficient and energy-intensive machines. Our brains have upwards of 86 billion neurons, connected by synapses that not only complete myriad logic circuits; they also continuously adapt to stimuli, strengthening some connections while weakening others.
That process is known as learning, and it enables the kind o.....
