FPGAs are the closest to the way the brain works. An FPGA has thousands to hundreds of thousands of logic gates, each of which can perform an operation in parallel each clock cycle. The problem is that developing software for a standard PC is much easier than developing for the massively parallel FPGAs.Solar wrote:The opening statement of that video is pretty potent. Velcro was developed by mimicking cockle-burs. Needless to say there are multiple mechanical developments that have arisen from observing Nature. I guess it would be a natural step to do the same for computer processors by observing and "reverse engineering" the human brain and how it processes information, stimulus etc. It was also interesting to hear that the human brain can process tons of information in "10 clock cycles". Something that would take a massive amount of computers to even come remotely close to. And it would be very remote.
