Leech-neuron “computer” aimed at robot use

from the someone-had-to-do-it…? dept.
Adam Burke writes "Georgia Institute of Technology scientists have made a computer of sorts from leech neurons."

An excerpt from the BBC piece: "Professor Ditto says a robot brain is his long-term aim, noting that conventional supercomputers are far too big for a robot to carry around. "We want to be able to integrate robotics, electronics and these type of computers so that we can create more sentient robots," he says. However, in the immediate future, the team from Georgia Tech and Emory University are working on enabling their computer to do multiplication."
