Growing computers in petri dishes

Eurekalert  September 14, 2018 Researchers at Lehigh University are working on an NSF project in support of Understanding the Brain and the BRAIN Initiative that seeks to accelerate the development of new neurotechnologies. They will be building an experimental testbed that will enable optical stimulation and detection of the activity in a living network of neurons and develop algorithms to train it. According to the researchers the intended impact of this work is to help computer engineers develop new ways to think about the design of solid-state machines and may influence other brain-related research…read more.
