The neocortex is a remarkable computational system. It uses slow computational elements to solve in real time a variety of computational problems that cannot be achieved by manmade computational methods implemented on very much faster hardware. This performance is clearly due to the fundamentally different computational methods that biology has evolved under very tight constraints of energy consumption and necessity for speed. Our brain consumes approximately 20W whereas a silicon version of… CONTINUE READING
