New Computer Programming Language Imitates The Human Brain

Stashed in: Brain, Turing

But the human brain, which most certainly must be a kind of computer, works a lot differently. It’s a massively parallel, massively redundant “computer” capable of generating approximately 10x16 processes per second. It’s doubtful that it’s as serialized as the Von Neumann model. Nor is it driven by a proprietary programming language (though, as many cognitive scientists would argue, it’s likely driven by biologically encoded algorithms). Instead, the brain’s neurons and synapses store and process information in a highly distributed, parallel way.

Which is exactly how IBM’s new programming language, called Corelet, works as well. The company disclosed its plans at the the International Joint Conference on Neural Networks held this week in Dallas.
