Caltech researchers create AI network from DNA strand



Researchers at the California Institute of Technology have created an artificial DNA neural network that demonstrates the ability to recall memories.

Lulu Qian, a postdoctoral scholar at Caltech, is the lead author of a paper describing the work in the July 21 issue of the journal Nature. A Caltech announcement says the researchers "have now taken a major step toward creating artificial intelligence ... in a test tube."
