New chip design mimics brain’s power-saving efficiency; uses 100x less power for complex processing than state-of-the-art chips
DARPA-funded researchers have developed one of the world’s largest and most complex computer chips ever produced—one whose architecture is inspired by the neuronal structure of the brain and requires only a fraction of the electrical power of conventional chips.
