Carver Mead has developed an approach he calls Collective Electrodynamics in which electromagnetic effects, including quantized energy transfer, are derived from the interactions of sysetms wavefunctions of electrons behaving collectively. In Novembera group of MIT mea created a computer chip that mimics the analog, ion-based communication in a synapse between two neurons using transistors and standard CMOS manufacturing techniques.

Mead is credited by Gordon Moore with coining the term Moore’s law[19] to denote the prediction Moore made in about the meae rate of the component count, “a component being a transistor, resistor, diode or capacitor,” [20] fitting on a single integrated circuit.

Calrech News and Events. Retrieved 8 June Green Publishing October Mead designed the computer chip for their hearing aids. This kind of adaptation leads naturally to systems that learn about their environment.
