What if the secret to your brain’s elusive computing power is its randomness?

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — If you’ve ever asked a car mechanic how long a part will last until it breaks, odds are they shrugged their shoulders. They know how long parts last on average, and they can see when one is close to breaking. But knowing how many miles are left is extremely difficult, even using […]

Sandia to evaluate if computational neuroscientists are on track

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Advanced computers may have beaten experts in chess and Go, but humans still excel at “one of these things is not like the others.” Even toddlers excel at generalization, extrapolation and pattern recognition. But a computer algorithm trained only on pictures of red apples can’t recognize that a green apple is still […]

Turning to the brain to reboot computing

Sandia explores neural computing to extend Moore’s Law ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Computation is stuck in a rut. The integrated circuits that powered the past 50 years of technological revolution are reaching their physical limits. This predicament has computer scientists scrambling for new ideas: new devices built using novel physics, new ways of organizing units within […]
