Computer chips have been evolving since they were first created – but only at the hands of their creators, each generation designed from the hard-learned lessons of the last. That may become a thing of the past, as we hear that a team of Norwegian techsperts have built the first computer hardware that ‘evolves’ of its own accord while it’s still running. If this takes off, there’s a whole new route to artificial intelligence about to open up.
One thought on “The evolution of computer hardware”
I’m not sure what this hardware brings into the mix apart from speed! I could use genetic algorithms on most machines nowadays and get the same results as they do.
That aside, GA do need a lot of human supervision, so I don’t see this as any different than a better tool.
