Comment Strong AI? Analog circuits rock! (Score 1) 142

Hello! 75 comments in already and no one mentions the most interesting part about this article. Analog circuits that learn, in five years!!!! Am I missing something? Isn't this huge for AI research? I'm serious. I am a layman but, this brings to my mind many additional benefits than "instant on" computers. How about computers that think and learn like we do? Also, an analog memristor could hold more than two values. Wouldn't this mean HUGE memory densities would be available? Are these ideas ridiculous or is the singularity even closer?
