quote: Adaptive, distributive computing is what makes our brains so powerful and different from silicon. Once silicon is set, it is there and cannot change. The closest we've come to it so far is quantum computing which can exist in both states simultaneously, being adaptive in concept. The interconnects though, not so much.
quote: The profound thing is, though, we still don't exactly know how memory operates. In a way, I think there is far more to this than neurons and interconnects that can only be answered by delving deeper into the subatomic (and smaller) levels.
