Knowledgeable commentary on John Markoff's "Brainlike Computers, 
Learning From Experience", New York Times for 28 December, at

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/12/29/science/brainlike-computers-learning-from-experience.html?nl=todaysheadlines&emc=edit_th_20131229&_r=0

would be most welcome. In particular I recommend attention, via that article, to the Stanford Brains in Silicon project, http://www.stanford.edu/group/brainsinsilicon/, and esp the work of Kwabena Boahen. Note his May 2005 Scientific American article, "Neuromorphic Microchips", and the scattered hints on what he and his colleagues have in mind.

Yours,
WM
