Companies like Intel and Qualcomm are building neuron-inspired cores and chips, while others experiment with deep learning neural networks or the novel architecture approach of machine learning. According to developers, software engineers, tech analysts and academics, as scientific and technological knowledge of how the brain works continues to expand, the early stages of brain-inspired computing features like speech recognition, question-and-answer capabilities and predictive recommendations may evolve into unparalleled levels of computing and problem-solving power.
