# Hardware for neural networks

Neuromorphic computing, rewriting Turing machines for blobby grey matter, other hybrid ideas

computers are awful

concurrency hell

grammar

number crunching

stringology

Placeholder, for thinking about the implementation and theory of computation as it has been perturbed by our increasing dependence upon neural models for computing.
