Researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Colarado have developed superconducting switches that can be learned like neurons in the human body.
This switch is called a “synapse”, which can connect processors and memory inside future computers that act like human brains. This work has been published in Science Advances.
Research shows that this switch of NIST is the missing part of a neural simulation computer. With a focus on a new type of artificial intelligence, these computers can help accelerate awareness and decision making for applications such as self-driving cars and cancer diagnostics.
This superconducting switch is called a “synapse,” which can connect processors and memory inside future computers that act like human brains.
Biological synapses are a connection or switch between two brain cells. Meanwhile, the NIST artificial synapse, a 10 micrometer diameter metal cylinder, acts as a switch between the input current and the output signal. The way this switch works is similar to how synapses convert signals quickly between two brain cells.
According to the study, artificial NIST synapses can be used in computers that simulate the human brain made from superconducting parts, which can transmit electricity without obstruction, thus providing high performance. than other designs based on semiconductors or software. The data can be transmitted, processed and stored in magnets.
Artificial NIST synapses have lower energy requirements than human synapses. While a human neuron can process 50 times per second, the NIST synapse is capable of transmitting 1 billion times per second. The larger the transmission between the cell and the processor, the stronger the connection. Therefore, both biological and artificial synapses can maintain and create new connections.
This new artificial synapse will be used to produce computers that simulate the brain, which can act like a human brain. In the past, other superconducting devices simulated human brain cells and transmission had been developed, but there were still lacking efficient synaptic joints.
NIST’s artificial synapse can be an important invention that connects them all together. In particular, joints can be arranged in three dimensions to create a larger system for computing.
NIST researchers have created a circuit model to simulate how such a system works.
The Boring Company began ordering fire guns, priced at 500 USD
In the video, Elon Musk seems to play a bit frantic as he holds the flaming fire-pistol and plugs his head forward.
After leaking information about The Boring Company ‘s new product, the brainchild of talented CEO Elon Musk has officially booked a flamethrower. There is a small change that the price of this gun is only 500 USD, not 600 USD as the article a few days ago said.
The price of this gun is 500 USD.
So if your neighbors have “caused a vengeance” to your home, you can quickly buy one and then … bake squid in front of the door so that they die, they want to go and nothing more. And you have to hurry up, because The Boring Company has sold 50,000 hats a few months ago in a very short time, so if you don’t buy this campfire machine, it will probably burn. That’s it!
The Boring Company flamethrowers.
Another interesting information is that the company has also released a video to introduce this product with two cool-looking employees, the hand of flamethrower does not look like stepping out of action movies. .
And yet, Elon Musk himself proved to be very shy and humorous when uploading his Instagram a short video back to the scene where he took the “fire gun of gas stove” to move forward. What a bold and humorous way of PR? Who would have thought that one of the most gifted, talented minds in the world would be so funny?
