BSU researchers are working on developing a computer chip based on the human brain, funded by a three-year National Science Foundation grant. “By mimicking the brain’s billions of interconnections and pattern recognition capabilities, we may ultimately introduce a new paradigm in speed and power, and potentially enable systems that include the ability to learn, adapt and respond to their environment,” said BSU Prof. Elisa Barney Smith, who is the principal investigator on the grant. She's working with fellow electrical and computer engineering faculty members Kris Campbell and Vishal Saxena; Cambell's Boise State lab is one of only half a dozen in the world that's capable of the project, BSU reports.
