I know I have several people at least marginally familiar with neurology that read my blag, to you, I present this:
A new transistor designed to mimic structures in the human brain could pave the way for increasingly efficient computer systems that “think” like humans, scientists say.
The transistor is the first to mimic a crucial process used by brain cells, or neurons, when the cells signal one another.
The goal is to build nanometer-scale circuit components that can be used in neuron-inspired computers, said physicist and study author Dominique Vuillaume of the Institute of Electronics, Microelectronics and Nanotechnology in France.
What do you think of this type of technology and its possible applications?
