New microchip array mimics efficiency of human brain

04/29/2014 | PhysOrg.com

Stanford University researchers have built a new generation of microchips whose speed and energy efficiency are much closer to that of the human brain, opening fresh opportunities for advanced robotics and prosthetic devices. The tablet-sized Neurogrid, which contains 16 custom chips, can simulate 1 million neurons and billions of synaptic connections, and could led to implants that control paralyzed or artificial limbs without overheating the brain. The research appears in the Proceedings of the IEEE.
