Nonetheless, the basic idea of neural simulation remains sound, and molecular
technology will make it more practical. What is more, this approach seems
guaranteed to work because it requires no fundamental new insights into the
nature of ...
Still, one can imagine AI hardware built to imitate a brain not only in function, but
in structure. This might result from a neural-simulation approach, or from the
evolution of AI programs to run on hardware with a brainlike style of organization.
The word “machine” again seems to conjure up the wrong image, a picture of
gross, clanking metal, rather than signals flickering through a shifting weave of
neural fibers, through a living tapestry more intricate than the mind it embodies
