IBM researchers in Switzerland have created an artificial neuron that behaves just like the real thing. For the first time in history, artificial phase-change neurons http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2016/08/ibm-phase-change-neurons/ have been grouped together (in a population of 500 synthesized in a lab) to process a neurological signal in more or less the same way that biological neurons transmit messages. They are similar in size, power, and energy usage to biological neurons, and can even produce...
