"A brain-like computer is one that can learn and adapt without external
programming. Such an ability would allow machines to become far better
at tasks like face and speech recognition. They could also process and
store data in the same location - just as nerve cells do. Conventional
computing loses efficiency by keeping these functions separate."
"In the UK, David Wright and colleagues at the University of Exeter have
created a GST neuron (Advanced Materials, DOI: 10.1002/adma.201101060),
while at Stanford University in California, Philip Wong's group have
created a nanoscale electronic synapse. The junction even mimics the way
synapses can change their connection strength (Nano Letters, DOI:
Well, they do say if the GST allay will generate qualia as well.
