Brain-Like Micro Chip the Size of Fingernail Could Replace Supercomputers

Brain-Like Micro Chip the Size of Fingernail Could Replace Supercomputers

Engineers based in Boston are working on a computer chip that could transmit varying levels of information at speeds as fast as a human brain. It’s hoped the development could miniaturize supercomputer technology. Currently, microchip technology is limited by signals relayed in a binary on and off fashion through electric currents. However, through the design of artificial neurons and synapses, experts at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are hoping to replicate the computing power of a human brain.
