MoNETA: A Mind Made from Memristors – IEEE Spectrum

Via Scoop.itCreating the Future

DARPA’s new memristor-based approach to AI consists of a chip that mimics how neurons process information…   MoNETA will be a general-purpose mammalian-type intelligence, an artificial, generic creature known as an animat. With the DARPA hardware, we think we will be able to fit this level of intelligence into a shoebox.
The key feature distinguishing MoNETA from other AIs is that it won’t have to be explicitly programmed. We are engineering MoNETA to be as adaptable and efficient as a mammal’s brain. We intend to set it loose on a variety of situations, and it will learn dynamically.
