Can we build computer systems that are based on a fly’s brain?
Did you know that a fly can process vast amounts of information about their environment in a fraction of a second, something no computer system in the world can? Perhaps we should start building our computers based on the brains of these seemingly inconsequential insects.
How about these autonomous robots designed based on insects’ behaviour?
It’s not just the flies; scientists are building artificial neural networks for computers based on insects’ neural networks.
Scientists have been studying the fly’s brains for years now. The secrets in these tiny brains could be the breakthrough needed to realize portable, personal supercomputers. https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/07/100712102812.htm
It’s just amazing how something so small can do things beyond the scope of human capabilities.
