Brain-Like Chip Outstrips Normal Computers , University of Heidelberg Study

Researchers have developed new computer chips that mimic the human brain, which could revolutionise our understanding of how the mind functions. Attempts to simulate the brain usually involve programming software to behave like groups of neurons. A "neuromorphic" design instead tries to recreate the brain's hardware, using analogue components last seen in the early days of computing.
