Washington: Scientists are using memristors- electronic microcomponents that imitate natural nerves- as key components in a blueprint for an artificial brain.Scientists have long been dreaming about building a computer that would work like a brain. This is because a brain is far more energy-saving than a computer, it can learn by itself, and it doesn`t need any programming.Dr. Andy Thomas from Bielefeld University`s Faculty of Physics and his colleagues constructed a memristor that is capable of learning a year ago.He is now is experimenting with his memristors for building an artificial brain.A nanocomponent that is capable of learning: The Bielefeld memristor built into a chip here is 600 times thinner than a human hair. Memristors are made of fine nanolayers and can be used to connect electric circuits.
