Dr. Hylton was formerly the DARPA program manager who initiated the SyNAPSE project on Neuromorphic Computing. He focused in his talk on the lessons learned during this project, including that building a computer from components that act as neurons is NOT the same thing as building a brain. We know how to do the former, but we don't really know how brains work, and we don't know how to develop the required software. The performance of brain structures on the largest scale may be only weakly dependent on the properties of neurons. Future R&D is necessary that combines algorithm development with network topology.
