Traditional computer chips waste time and energy shuttling data between separate memory and computational units. Neural circuits in the brain, by contrast, achieve enormous efficiencies by storing and processing information at the same place. Inspired by biological models of learning, researchers are designing computing elements that mimic neural circuits and consume massively less energy.
