From CNN - 'Brain' in a dish flies flight simulator...

A lot of my work here has involved utilizing artificial neural networks (ANN's), and this article from CNN is an interesting read. As much advanced ANN's have gotten, they still do not match up to the complexity of even a single biological neuron.....makes you realize how simplified our models of complex systems really are. That apart, we will be seeing much more of machines interfacing with biological systems in the future. Kevin Warwick's work comes to mind here. This has also been a theme with some fiction authors -- Robin Cook's Brain, and more recently Michael Crichton's Prey (where nanobots use bacteria to obtain power) are some examples.....
