Russian Scientists Just Got One Step Closer to a Brain-Like Computer

Scientists are getting closer to a computer that operates similarly to the human brain.  Russian scientists just made a major breakthrough that brings us closer than ever to a human-like computer. Six researchers from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have developed a hardware prototype of “electronic synapses,” which is essentially a man-made version of the synapses in our brains that allows us to transmit the signals we use to think and learn. In the paper the team just published in the journal Nanoscale Research Letters, the authors state that their prototype exhibits properties similar to biological synapses and that thanks to this research, we are now one step closer to building an entire artificial neural network. “In the future, this technology may be used to design computers that function similar to biological…
