SyNAPSE in IEEE Spectrum Online

HP memristor

HP memristor ...in perspective

IEEE Spectrum online. Again, IBM appears all over the news. One of the main misconceptions of SyNAPSE is that, imagining of course the 3 companies involved in SyNAPSE succeed, the resulting chip will automatically result in better “MRAPs, UAVs, Mars Rovers”. This is of course not true. A very dense neural chip is 1/2 of the story. The ingredient that SyNAPSE needs to succeed is having meaningful neural models implemented on the chip. And this is where the other 1/2 of the competition will lie in the long (7 years) program.
