Bio-inspired machine learning goes open source

Since our bio-inspired machine learning technology “Dynamic Boltzmann Machine (DyBM)” debuted in the fall of 2015, we received many comments on the music demo and human evolution image that we used to show how an artificial neural network learns about different topics in different formats. Many developers expressed interest in using the code to let […]

IoT neurons go macro, go global with DyBM

Imagine covering the globe with a sheet of artificial, internet-enabled neurons. And these Internet of Things (IoT) neurons could send their local information to other neurons just like the synapses in our brains. For example, a ground temperature neuron at one location gets collected and shared with air quality neurons, and vice versa. This spatio-temporal […]
