reports that solving Sodoku mathematical puzzles involves the use of neural pathways that cannot currently be replicated by the most powerful computers. A new paper published by Princeton University Professor John Hopfield examines the brain processes we utilize when playing Sodoku. In order to solve the puzzle, our brains use a unique set of neural pathways known as associative memory, which enable us to discover patterns from partial clues. Currently, computers can store large amounts of data and process it quickly; but they are not yet able to incorporate sophisticated applications of associative memory. Hopfield includes an algorithm for...
