‘Learning On The Fly’: Brain-Inspired Neuromorphic Chip Tested In Prototype Drone – 5 November 2014

RT logoScientists, backed by the Pentagon’s research agency DARPA, have tested a smart chip mimicking human brain functions in robots. For the trial, the chip designed to learn new skills and one day replace acquire human reasoning was installed on a tiny drone.

HRL Laboratories’ Center for Neural and Emergent Systems on behalf of the he Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) has just tested a tiny drone with a prototype neuromorphic chip, MIT’s Technology Review reports.

The prototype, with just only 576 silicon neurons, was analyzing and responding to data gathered by optical, ultrasound, and infrared sensors of the drone as it was flying between test rooms and automatically reprogramming itself.
