Sailing into new computing waters.
Neuromorphic computing is seen as potentially fertile territory in which to mimic the workings of the brain. It has taken a significant step forwards with the development of the SpiNNaker supercomputer at the University of Manchester. SpiNNaker features spiking artificial neurons operating in a parallel architecture. There is still a way to go. SpiNNaker can simulate in the thousands of neurons. The brain runs to billions of neurons. But watch this space.
