"That's interesting," said the scientist observing a memory-like persistence in an atomic switch. Flash forward to a 2-millimeter-by-2-millimeter mesh of silver nanowires connected by artificial synapses. Unlike silicon circuitry, with its geometric precision, this device is messy, like “a highly interconnected plate of noodles,” and exhibits similar criticality to other complex, natural processes.
