New microchip mimics human brain

We have already seen advances in quantum computing, such as the development of quantum chips and electron refrigerators to keep quantum computers cool. But the ‘holy grail’ of computing has long been the creation of a computer that can mimic the human brain in the way it stores and processes information. Now, scientists have moved one step closer to that goal with the creation of a photonic microchip – a chip that uses light instead of electricity to create a super-fast computer chip that imitates the way the brain works. The chip was developed by researchers from Oxford, Münster and Exeter Universities.
