“Superconducting computing chips modelled after neurons can process information faster and more efficiently than the human brain. That achievement, described in Science Advances below, is a key benchmark in the development of advanced computing devices designed to mimic biological systems. And (as described below), it could open the door to more natural machine-learning software ….”
