Default Scientists create artificial neural circuit

The human brain has one quadrillion synaptic connections and in an attempt to approach the power of one person’s noddle, scientists have created one simple artificial neural circuit.

The scientists – at the University of California Santa Barbara – said that it tested a circuit of 100 artificial synapses to match a simple task of image classification.

Dmitri Strukov, a professor of electrical and computer engineering, described it as a small but important step towards scaling up to the functions of your brain.

Strukov said that the human brain is a model of computational power and efficiency and can do things in a fraction of a second, while computers need far more time and energy.

The test was able to classify three letters of the alphabet – z, v and n – by their images, with the letters being stylised in different ways or swamped with noise.
