Will it mimic my desire to...
Robots with Intel Inside brains? That's what Chipzilla has in mind with its Loihi 2 neuromorphic chip, which tries to mimics the human brain. This is Intel's stab at creating more intelligent computers that can efficiently discover patterns and associations in data and from that learn to make smarter and smarter decisions. It …
Actually, lets break it down.
The Loihi2 has 1million neurons, but each one runs 500x faster than biological. So each Loihi is equivalent to half a billion biological neurons. The human brain has 90B neurons, but the brain does a bunch of stuff like run the body, process sensory input, run the entire motor system. How many neurons are involved in cognition? The wiki page linked above for neuron counts estimates 20% are involved in the "sensory associative structure", so the thinking part of the brain is around 18B neurons.
Get a cluster of 36 Loihi2s, and we may already have the equivalent cognitive power of a human brain.
