One step closer to artificial intelligence: Scientists create cells replicating human brain processes

Australian scientists have for the first time developed an electronic long-term memory cell that mimics the work of a human brain. Researchers say the discovery is a step towards creating a bionic brain.

Researchers from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT) have created the world’s first electronic multi-state memory cell which mirrors the brain’s ability to simultaneously process and store multiple strands of information, according to the university’s press-release. 

The groundbreaking discovery was recently published in the materials science journal Advanced Functional Materials. 

The device which is 10,000 times thinner than a human hair is a “vital step towards creating a bionic brain,” the scientists said.
