Superlative study (funded by the Department of Defense – Army Research Office) – via Duke University’s Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Durham, Nort Carolina and the Salk Institute for Biological Studies – Integrative Biology Laboratory in La Jolla, California – targeting the apparent similarities between artifical and biologic network implementations. Today’s must read!
“The founders of the Internet spent a lot of time considering how to make information flow efficiently,” says Salk Assistant Professor Saket Navlakha, coauthor of the new study that appears online in Neural Computation on February 9, 2017. “Finding that an engineered system and an evolved biological one arise at a similar solution to a problem is really interesting.”
