New hardware for a computational brain

Computational neuroscientist Terrence Sejnowski has called for more power-efficient, parallel computing architecture to support future robots that could keep up with the human brain.

Delivering the Graeme Clark Oration in Melbourne this week, the Salk Institute director described a future where the brain was more than just “a part of the body”.

But today’s computing architecture was unlikely to support that vision, he said, describing the brain as “the most complex device in the known universe”.
