Researchers have created a brain-inspired computer chip that could transform the development of human-level artificial intelligence. A team from Purdue University in the US demonstrated an innovative circuit capable of rewiring itself as it learns, just like the human brain. The professor reveals ‘We have now created an artificial platform for machines to learn throughout their lifespan,’.

Why is this important?
It's no secret that artificial intelligence is quickly becoming more and more advanced. But a new AI chip developed by researchers at Purdue University in the US may be the most impressive advancement yet. The chip, which is modeled after the human brain, can actually rewire itself to learn continuously - just like a human! This could mean big things for the future of AI development. “The brains of living beings can continuously learn throughout their lifespan. We have now created an artificial platform for machines to learn throughout their lifespan,” said Shriram Ramanathan, a professor in Purdue University’s School of Materials Engineering. “If we want to build a computer or a machine that is inspired by the brain, then correspondingly, we want to have the ability to continuously program, reprogram and change the chip.” A study describing the breakthrough, published in the journal Science, details how the chip is able to optimize its underlying hardware in order to meet new challenges as they arise. The ai chip was also able to function as a “grow when required” (GWR) neural network, which allows it to grow and shrink depending on the size of the task. This, therefore, optimizes the chip’s efficiency in a way that conventional chips are unable to and allows it to “pick and choose” which circuits are the best fit for addressing problems.
