Csiko (1838192) writes "Researchers at Boston University's department of cognitive and neural systems work on an artificial brain implemented with Memristors. A Memristor is a new class of electronic device that completes the two-terminal passive elements resistor, capacitor and inductor. Also theoretically described, solid state versions of memristors have not been implemented until recently.
Now researchers in Boston claim that memristors are the new key technology to implement highly integreated powerful artificial brains on cheap and widely available hardware within five years."
