Are synchronized ‘wacky oxide’ chips the key to brain-like computers?

A neuromorphic chip
Researchers at Penn State have created a new kind of computer chip that could be the key to creating neuromorphic (brain-like) computers that can solve incredibly complex problems while consuming just 1% of the power of current chips. These new chips contain a special “wacky oxide” (that’s the scientific term) material that oscillates at certain frequency, and synchronizes with other nearby wacky chips — much in the same way that nearby neurons often fire in synchrony.
