IBM has developed a microprocessor which it claims comes closer than ever to replicating the human brain.
Some future-gazers in the cognitive computing world have speculated that the technology will reach a tipping point where machine consciousness is possible.
IBM's work on the SyNAPSE project continues and the company, along with its academic partners, has just been awarded $21m (12.7m) by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Do i really need a robo-hooker who can apreciate my bad breath and off-kilter humor?

There is way more to intelligent thought than mimicry.

You can teach a parot to give speaches but that doesnt make it possible for a parrot to run the country. Obama is proof.

A chip using the pathways of the human mind is an amazing feat but its still a piece of plastic and metal.

Computer programs cannot go from 1 to 2 to 3 and arrive at the colour blue then get to 4. While as interesting as artificial intelligence is its about as liekly to happen as a space alien showing up on the white house lawn and endorsing obama for 2012...

Be careful what you wish for. :D

Artificial intelligence will happen, eventually. Machines will have to be able to learn without direct programming and that hasn't happened yet.

Most intelligence I come across is artificial, this does not concern me.

Artificial or superficial?

Malformed binary, binary is supposed to be divisible by 8.
