Two years ago this month, IBM announced that it had developed a cognitive computer chip, inspired by human neural architecture. That chip was developed as part of the SyNAPSE project, which has a long term goal of building a computing system that can handle tasks that are relatively easy for human brains, but hard for computers. Today, the company has announced that it’s created a programming architecture for those chips so that developers can design applications for them once those chips are a reality.

“Today’s computers are very good at analytics and number crunching,” project leader Dr. Dharmendra S. Modha told me. “Think of today’s computers as left brained and SyNAPSE as right brained.”
