Brainy computer chips – how computers ‘learn’

  • The Turing Test, or the ability for a computer to exhibit intelligent behaviour, would require computer chips to form, re-form and strengthen artificial synapses.
  • Recent computer chip advances have produced “brain chips” capable of “learning”. Able to crunch more than numbers, these chips might enable computers to sense, perceive, interact and recognise objects much like humans.

The capacity to assimilate a broad array of data makes this technology attractive for analysing complex systems and may be used by Government, for example, to improve predictions of climate change, pandemics and flooding.
