Australian startup Cortical Labs is building computer chips that use biological neurons extracted from mice and humans, Fortune reports . The goal is to dramatically lower the amount of power current artificial intelligence systems need to operate by mimicking the way the human brain. According to Cortical Labs’ announcement, the company is planning to “build technology that harnesses the power of synthetic biology and the full potential of the human brain” in order to create a “new class” of AI that could solve “society’s greatest challenges.” The mouse neurons are extracted from embryos, according to Fortune , but the […]futurism.com
