A computer that simulates the function of the human brain! Organic electrochemical synaptic transistors, can be realized

No computer, however advanced, can imitate the function of the human brain, but in the future, this saying may be broken. Scientists in China and the United States have worked together to develop a new computing device called the organic electrochemical synaptic transistor, which is said to mimic the function of the human brain, learn by association, and be extremely plastic. Is this true? Will the idea of computers doing the work of the human brain become a reality? How will the new device work?

Although our current computer running speed has been very fast, it can deal with a variety of complex calculations in an instant. However, even the most advanced computer has great limitations, that is, it does not have the fault-tolerant ability of our human brain. Moreover, in the setting of the computer, storage and operation are separated, and these two functions cannot be combined, so that when we want to retrieve information, we have to call the storage unit. Unable to deal with these two functions at the same time, the computer user will increase a lot of workload, very inconvenient 39bet-kết quả bóng đá-kết quả xổ số miền bắc-kèo bóng đá -soi cầu bóng đá-đặt cược. To put it bluntly, our computer, not similar to the brain as flexible thinking, we can continue to learn, the knowledge stored in the mind, and call at the same time, can even be mastered, but the computer can only take care of one and lose the other.

You can’t do that without your brain’s synapses. It’s kind of like a twig, but it’s a branching of neurons, and it ends up in a little ball, and it has a name, it’s called a synaptosome. And it’s through the contact of these symptoms that our brain sends information. It’s because of these synapses in our brains that the human brain is so computation-capable and fault-tolerant, it’s so complex.

So how do we get computers to do the same? Now, you can do that with synaptic transistors. Through the ions in the synaptic transistor, it simulates the function of the synapse. The way ions behave with each other is like the way signals pass between synapses.

The main approach being explored is to combine pressure and light into circuits and then connect individual synaptic transistors into them. In this system, pressure and light are interrelated, so synaptic transistors learn over time to form an initial connection to light and pressure. Just as we domesticated our pets, when we rang a bell, the pets knew it was time to be fed. The bell and the feed, similar to the pressure and light here, allow the transistor to form an unconditioned response.

So where will this technology be used in the future? The main one is wearable devices, and most notably such devices are flexible, because synaptic circuits are made of soft polymers that fit our bodies like clothing. And this technology could potentially be integrated with living tissue, opening a new chapter in human technology. What does that mean? In the future, our brains may also be able to dock directly with a super-intelligent robot, similar to the system in Iron Man.

So where is the technology now?

I’m sorry, it’s still in the concept stage, but it’s enough to show you the great potential of this technology, because technology is constantly evolving and human ingenuity is infinite. If the technology can be hooked up to living tissue, it could be a disruptive development for bioelectronics and indeed artificial intelligence, as if opening the door to a future world. However, there are many friends who do not want this technology to be realized. After all, it will bring some risks. What do you think about this technology?
