Engineers design artificial synapse for 'brain-on-a-chip' hardware
#1
https://m.phys.org/news/2018-01-artifici...dware.html

Packed within the squishy, football-sized organ are somewhere around 100 billion neurons. At any given moment, a single neuron can relay instructions to thousands of other neurons via synapses—the spaces between neurons, across which neurotransmitters are exchanged. There are more than 100 trillion synapses that mediate neuron signaling in the brain, strengthening some connections while pruning others, in a process that enables the brain to recognize patterns, remember facts, and carry out other learning tasks, at lightning speeds.

So will this allow for fast neural nets as an actual circuit, instead of relying on software based implementations?

That seem to be the goal because information processing would not happen via the slower on / off computations occurring in binary processors chips. This keyword search produced some interesting results. "how many processors would be needed to equal the processing ability of the human brain"
