A human brain has, on average, 86 billion neurons firing throughout the nervous system. Computers that function similarly could open the doors to more powerful computing.

Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin have discovered the potential of using the super material graphene to develop synaptic transistors for brain-like computers.

For most traditional computing devices, silicon remains the gold standard. However, there have long been attempts to use more flexible, more efficient, and more environmentally friendly materials for transistors.
