IBM has announced that it has created and is now testing it's first Cognitive Computing chips. These chips are modeled after the synapses and neurons of the human brain. Current computers are little more than calculators, following every command through complicated and inefficient mathematics. Instead of following programming, Cognitive computers will experience and learn from their experiences.
The question is can they easily unlearn after they make mistakes? Will they self-correct so that misperceptions don't shape all subsequent experiences?
If so they will have a leg up on us.
