If you thought smartphones and mobile computers have made a big impact on our daily lives, than wait until you see what the computers of the near future are capable of doing.
Peter van der Made, current Chief Scientist at vWISP based in Western Australia has spent more than ten years studying the human brain and understanding how

His newly published book, Higher Intelligence, tells about the breakthroughs in the last decade that have been made into building an ‘artificial brain’ chip that will eventually help computers learn similar to a human brain. [source]
