IBM Unveils Software for DARPA Intelligent Machines Program

IBMlogo3 Ebiz

IBM has unveiled software for its intelligent machines development contract with the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, Tech News World reported Friday.

Richard Adhikari writes that the software ecosystem supports the complete programming cycle of the Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics project.

Tech News World describes the new software, called TrueNorth, as “a multithreaded, massively parallel, highly scalable functional software simulator of a cognitive computing architecture consisting of a network of neurosynaptic cores.”

According to IBM, its engineers patterned the TrueNorth architecture over the human brain’s “message-passing network.”

The software concludes the fourth phase of the SyNAPSE project launched in 2008.

Late last year, DARPA awarded IBM with a $12 million contract to develop the hardware for the SyNAPSE program.
