‘Memtransistor’ Brings World Closer To Brain-Like Computing

 Lead researcher Mark C. Hersam clarified the brain-like efficacy of the memtransistor: “…in the brain, we don’t usually have one neuron connected to only one other neuron. Instead, one neuron is connected to multiple other neurons to form a network. Our device structure allows multiple contacts, which is similar to the multiple synapses in neurons… [but] making dozens of devices, as we have done in our paper, is different than making a billion, which is done with conventional transistor technology today.”
