IBM developing 'electronic blood' for cooling cognitive computing #bigdata #ibmwatson #analytics : via @eetimes

PORTLAND, Ore.—To achieve the exascale speeds necessary for the realtime analysis of the Big Data streaming in from the massive sensor networks of the future—such as the Square Kilometer Array (SKA) radio telescope to be completed in 2024—IBM is exploring the use of "electronic blood" to not only cool but also to power the cognitive computers of the future. "We are taking a new approach inspired by the brain," said IBM Research scientist Bruno Michel. "Neurons are both cooled and powered by the blood, and by copying this packaging technique in the brain we hope to achieve a 5,000-times energy efficiency improvement by compacting the volume of our devices by several million times." IBM announced Monday (March 11) that the South African government's National Research Foundation is joining it and the Netherlands Institute for Radio Astronomy (NIRA) in the Dome collaborative r...
