Fixing Brains With Engineered Neural Tissue

Micro Tissue Engineered Neural Networks (micro-TENNs) are preformed neural network structures which can serve as a foundation for reconstruction of damaged brain pathways. These engineered tissues are being injected into the brains of lab rats for testing. If the neural network tissue is “trained” with a specific knowledge set before being injected, it might become […]

NeuroSynaptic (brain-inspired) Chip by IBM

In 2008, DARPA started a program called SyNAPSE (Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics), with the intention of designing new computing infrastructure based on human biological brains. In April, 2014, engineers at Stanford University announced a circuit board using 16 “Neurocore” chips that together can simulate the capability of one million neurons with billions […]

Mind Control Interface

Researchers at the University of Minnesota demonstrate a non-invasive mind control interface. Monitoring of brain waves generated by specific thought patterns can be translated into software control impulses. In this case, they are used to control a flying drone, but the applications are endless. Mind Over Mechanics – [youtube.com] In a jaw-dropping feat of engineering, […]

Neural Networks

A biological neural network is a collection of connected neurons that offer some function as a nervous system or brain. But the term “neural network” usually refers to a software logic array that attempts to mimic some part of the design or function of a biological network. In the biological form, there are neuron cells […]

Computer Brains

FACETS (Fast Analog Computing with Emergent Transient States) works at reproducing brain-like processing using computer hardware. FACETS (Fast Analog Computing with Emergent Transient States) – [ uni-heidelberg.de] The goal of the FACETS project is to create a theoretical and experimental foundation for the realisation of novel computing paradigms which exploit the concepts experimentally observed in […]
