   Cortex chip goes both ways
The brain's cortex inspired researchers to build a variation on standard silicon-based neural networks. The results yielded a surprise: a hybrid analog-digital chip. The work could lead to devices that have the best of both worlds, combining analog's ability to pare down large data streams with digital's number crunching precision. Full story
