Global chip behemoth Intel is studying technology able to mimic the human brain, allowing devices to map patterns of human behaviour.
Intel’s Collaborative Research Institute for Computational Intelligence in Israel, in conjunction with several Israeli research organisations, is studying applications able to enhance daily life, reports Reuters.
It cites the example of a device able to remember when a user forgets their car keys at home, and later reminding the user to collect their keys.
Intel expects the technology to be available in two or three years time.
"Within five years all of the human senses will be in computers and in 10 years we will have more transistors in one chip than neurons in the human brain," said Intel’s Israeli president Mooly Eden.
Rattner revealed Intel is already using the technology in its digital signage partnership with Adidas, where the sign determines the sex of the viewer and subsequently shows suitable products.
