Unorganized Machines: Emergent Criticality in Complex Turing B-Type Atomic Switch Networks (Adv. Mater. 2/2012)
Alan Turing, famous for developing his algorithmic approach to computation, also explored the possibility of computing in complex, unorganized assemblies of logic gates. On page 286, a hardware-based, neuromorphic electronic device built by Adam Stieg and co-workers exhibits features similar to the electrical activity of biological brains and neuron assemblies using a complex network of self-assembled atomic switches.
