Chips Off the Old Block: Computers Are Taking Design Cues From Human Brains New technologies are testing the limits of computer semiconductors. To deal with that, researchers have gone looking for ideas from nature.
The goal of the Human Brain Project is to build a completely new ICT infrastructure for future neuroscience, future medicine and future computing that will catalyse a global collaborative effort to understand the human brain and its diseases and ultimatel
Want to play with Quantum Computing? Here a youtube from a scientist at IBM Research talking about q-computing and offering/inviting anyone to log onto IBM's free web quantum computing interface; where you can learn and use < for free > one of their quantum computers to design and exercise your quantum problem solving skills!
