Kwabena Boahen, an associate professor in the Department of
Bioengineering, leads a research group that is trying to mimic the

Microchips that function as the brain does or see like our eyes do were
once consigned to an unrealized world of flying cars and robot
housekeepers. Thanks, in part, to a Stanford researcher, such
"neuromorphic" processors are becoming more of a reality.
