Memristors and Nanowires

“The human brain is neurologically advanced and exploits connectivity that is controlled by electrical and chemical signals. My research will create nanowire networks that have the potential to mimic aspects of the neurological functions of the human brain, which may revolutionize the performance of current day computers. It could be truly ground-breaking.”

An Advance in Mesoscale Graph Theory with implications for Whole Brain Emulation

The brain is well modeled as a dynamical system. However the present state of knowledge about the brain does not allow for a rigorous mathematical analysis of all its functions such as one can apply to other physical systems like electronic circuits. However we still may make some statements about models of brain function, and some quite large models now exist.

Human Brain Mapping & Simulation Projects: America Wants Some, Too?

Europe’s billion-Euro science-neuro Human Brain Project, mentioned here amongst machine morality last week, is basically already funded and well underway. Now the colonies over in the new world are getting hip, and they too have in the works a project to map/simulate/make their very own copy of the universe’s greatest known computational artifact: the gelatinous wad of convoluted electrical puddin...
