How does the human brain run itself without any software? Find that out, say European researchers, and a whole new field of neural computing will open up. A prototype 'brain on a chip' is already working.
"We know that the brain has amazing computational capabilities," remarks Karlheinz Meier, a physicist at Heidelberg University. "Clearly there is something to learn from biology. I believe that the systems we are going to develop could form part of a new revolution in information technology."
It's a strong claim, but Meier is coordinating the EU-supported FACETS project which brings together scientists from 15 institutions in seven countries to do just that. Inspired by research in neuroscience, they are building a ‘neural' computer that will work just like the brain but on a much smaller scale.
