  • Modeling computer chips on real brains Computers are nowhere near as versatile as our own brains. Merolla et al. applied our present knowledge of the structure and function of the brain to design a new computer chip that uses the same wiring rules and architecture. The flexible, scalable chip operated efficiently in real time, while using very little power. Science, this issue p. 668 A large-scale computer chip mimics many features of a real brain. Inspired by the brain’s structure, we have… CONTINUE READING
