The idea is you can copy the brain’s ‘neuronal connection map’ using a nanoelectrode array developed by the researchers, which they say is capable of recording a large number. This is then pasted to a high-density, three-dimensional network of solid-state memory—of which Samsung sees itself as the master of the craft.
