Neural silicon, the real road to AI? (28 Feb, 2018)

Is the real future of AI going to be built around silicon analogs of the brain itself?

Might silicon neurons interconnected by electronic synapses be the best way to create a platform for artificial intelligence systems?

In theory, it might even save a lot of coding if we just build an electronic brain, cut a little bit of bootstrap code then leave it to learn and program itself.

And if Intel's predictions of delivering deep learning systems that have two orders of magnitude more performance within two years is true, could AI be a far more powerful tool than even its greatest advocates are claiming?

I suppose the tech will roll along until we reach a point where a system can design and build another system that is more sophisticated than itself. Then we'll go from 'winning at Go' to Skynet in one exciting afternoon.

this could be real interesting
most of the problems stepped over at once
