    I wish they could see intel driver model financially feasible. I don't like the close model that most ARM vendors are taking. ARM itself is not better either. I meant Linux ecosystem of course. Reply

    I wonder does ARM have any interest in pursuing the CNN(ComputationalNeuralNetwork) approach to processing? Even in an exotic research sense-maybe as a co-processor which could be optionally incorporated into some of their designs. Seems well suited to tasks coming up in the future..inference, language, computer vision, navigation, etc..

    I remember reading books about this and it sounded so promising in terms of unique capabilities, as compared with let's say the Von Neumann/Harvard paradigm.
    Seems to of been abandoned to a large degree despite the performance possibilities.
    Has it just gone dark for military reasons?

    Would really love to see this technology resurrected with modern fabrication techniques.

    Sorry, this is what I'm referring to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cellular_neural_netwo... Reply

    they already are ina round about way ,Steve Furber now a professor of computer engineering at the University of Manchester and head of the University's ICL processor of computer engineering and leader of the SpiNNaker computing architecture project at Manchester,UK uni, a principal designer of the legendary BBC Micro, is already using arm cores to simulate the brain

    Wowwowwow, thank you..
    Sort of difficult to track information on this subject because most of the companies doing this research in the early naughties seem to of folded and when you mention "neural network" most people assume you're talking about the traditional type instead of an actual new computing architecture based on the insights of Leon Chua.
    Looks like a really good contemporary resource for me to investigate further-thank you again!
