There is still a lot of work to be done, but Samsung believes it will be able to âcopy and pasteâ the human brain onto arrays of 3D chips.
They found a way to develop “brain-shaped” chips using existing brain structures.
In his proposal, there is a method that analyzes the neural network in the brain and clones it as 3D neuromorphic chips, using a nanoelectrode array that studies the connections of neurons in a human brain to paste them into a memory. 3D solid-state array, although the form of storage is not yet defined (it could be RAM, for example).
Each unit of memory would have a conductance that reflects the strength of each neural connection on the board. The result would be an effective return to âreverse engineering of the brainâ as scientists had initially planned.
The idea is to give artificial intelligence a further boost, which could end up behaving like real brains, ready to learn new things and adapt to changing conditions.
The machines of the future, with this system, could be completely autonomous, with real cognition, like those in films which generally don’t end well.
The problem is that a human brain has around 100 billion neurons with a thousand times more synaptic links, so an ideal neuromorphic chip would need around 100 trillion units of memory, a huge challenge for Samsung and all. other computer hardware company. , although nothing impossible in the long run.
On the other hand, this virtual brain should be programmed, and that’s something few programmers would be willing to do in the medium term.
