Yes there are simpler ways, such as migrating oxygen vacancies in oxides, but neither HP, Hynix or any other semiconductor maker has been able to follow through on their "simpler" approaches. Is there such a thing as "too simple."

It's an interesting piece, but is ferroelectric really preferred? There are other, less exotic ways of building synapses.

Electronic brains are already here, but not in large-scale commercial usage, because the most popular model are software (like Watson) and thus very slow. A few big players have moved to hardware (such as Intel's Nirvana chip) but French researchers at the University of Arkansas believe they have a better way that uses ferroelectric artificial synapses to learn in realtime.
