Powered by plutonium and drawing 400 watts of power each to run their electronics and heat, the probes still snap photos and send them back to NASA. After 42 years, though, only six of Voyager 2s 10 instruments still work...
Ultimately, the team aimed to better understand how to use novel and emerging materials to make chips more computationally efficient. Their efforts to design and simulate a new neuromorphic chip led Yanguas-Gils to two pivotal breakthroughs. They were able to use filters and weights that impact neural connections in real time, depending on what the system deems important and they created a new nanocomposite materialtungsten aluminum oxidethat can enable the chip to operate at power levels far below one watt.
In a biological system, the network can learn by itself and offers a much higher degree of flexibility, he said. Evolutionary pressure on insects produces very efficient, adaptive computing machines. Bees, for instance, exhibit half the number of distinct cognitive behaviors of dolphins, just in a much smaller volume.

Hmmmm. I always wanted to be the next Bobby Fischer.
It looks like I still have a chance at it. I just need to bury one of these chips in my head where nobody can see it, hook it up to my brain and play a lot of chess.
They did send that gold disc with all the different languages saying hello!
Sending stuff is kind fo hit /miss.
Can’t they just tune in to one of the high power transmitters in Mexico?
I always wanted to be the next Bobby Fischer.
No need for expensive surgery and the antennas can be a problem when combing your hair.
Just run a good chess app on your phone and hide it in the washroom like all the others!!
Already have that in Congress.
Actually fascinating stuff. I did a Senior Seminar in mechanisms of memory in one celled and simple multicellular animals. How can a one celled organism have a memory? But they do.
Actually fascinating stuff.
“They chose to study the protist, or slime mold, Physarum polycephalum, a giant cell that inhabits shady, cool areas and has proved to be endowed with some astonishing abilities, such as solving a maze, avoiding traps or optimizing its nutrition. But until now very little was known about its ability to learn.”
” Furthermore, a protist habituated to caffeine displayed distrustful behavior towards quinine, and vice versa. “
With zero acknowledgment or credit to the Creator of such with their DNA, and the (limited) adaptive ability with its species, and conditions relative to such.
And they are COMPLAINING??
And they are COMPLAINING??
I’m certain the taxpayers put out top dollar for the project.
I have a nice Singer 201 that was manufactured the same month and year I was born, still works well! Seventy plus years!
We have a Congress that quit working long ago.
