Memtransistor one step closer to brain computing
Published in Processors

Stores and processes information for when your own brain hurts 

Boffins at Northwestern University's McCormick School of Engineering have emerged from their smoke filled labs clutching a "memtransistor" which they claim is the closest thing we have to a computer chip that works a bit like the human brain.

Who needs Intel when you have a few rats?

Never mind silicon chips, the future of the computer is bio-mechanics and the parts can be found in your sewer.

Memristors are better than silicon

Memristor could be the best chance to build chips which mimic the human brain. Not everyone's brain of course. There is no point mimicking the brain of someone who thinks that a Smartwatch is a pretty need idea, but rather the brain of someone who is a little more clever.
