Computers Thinking Like Humans

New Switch Enables Computer Chips to Work Like Human Brains Brainstorming This is a bit of a brainstorm.  The breakthrough research is from the United States' National Institute of Standards and Technology.  Their scientists have developed a superconducting switch that learns like a biological system.  They call the switch a synapse like its brain counterpart. It's an artificial synapse that acts like a human brain.  It can process incoming electrical spikes to customize spiking output signals like the brain. Switch on "Brain Computers" This switch appears to be the missing piece for neuromorphic computing - computers that function like our brain.  The switch is small but powerful.  It's a tiny metallic cylinder 10 micrometers in diameter. New Form of AI This tech is envisioned by NIST scientists as a new form of artificial intelligence.  Computers enabled by this could increase decision-making and perception for cancer diagnosis and self-driving cars a
