IBM computing algorithm thinks like an animal

Keywords: IBM, artificial intelligence, algorithm, thinking, vertebrate

"A mathematical model that mimics the behavior of the brain's neocortal minicolumns could one day lead to robots that can 'see' like humans and/or make appropriate decisions when bombarded with sensory information.

The mathematical model created at IBM simulates the behavior of 500,000 minicolumns connected by 400 million connections. With it, 'we were able to demonstrate self-organization' and behavior similar to that seen in the real world, according to Charles Peck of IBM's Biometaphorical Computing team."
