A brain-inspired computer by IBM? Great, but I hope they will forget about the neuromyth they are referring to…

A great video by IBM, but… Check the text and video placed along this video:

Dr. Dharmendra Modha led Project SyNAPSE Lab to create a technology that, someday soon, will transform these possibilities into reality. Inspired by the cognitive functioning of the human brain, Modha and his team created a chip that can meld the “left brain” capabilities of our current computers with “right brain” capabilities – like comprehending visual imagery, spatial awareness, and interpreting speech. As a holistic form of intelligence, the SyNAPSE has the potential to serve our civilization on some of its most challenging global issues.

Oops, left-brain right brain myth? Yep! Please don’t.
