@everetra - Surely you’re not serious about war games, are you? Have you never seen the movie by the same name, built upon the same premise you just outlined? I am excited about neural information processing myself, but for completely different reasons.
I think the computers of the future will use neural networks. I say this because the computers of the future will use nanotechnology, from what I understand.
Nanobots are little robots performing specialized tasks. There can be thousands or even millions of these nanobots operating inside of a computer’s operating system. I can easily see how that the nanobots could function as nodes in a neural network.
Your computer would do more than run basic productivity applications. It would be virtual intelligence sitting inside your PC, able to learn and interact with you like the “computer” in Star Trek. I know I’m a bit far out, but I see the day coming.
