Simulating neural networks
A fast and energy efficient circuit board which models neural circuits in the human brain offers new opportunities for robotics and brain-machine interfaces. The device contains 16 chips and consumes just three watts to simulate in real time the computing capability of a million neurons with billions of synaptic connections.
