This article looks at the use of cultured neural networks as the decision-making mechanism of a control system. In this case biological neurons are grown and trained to act as an artificial intelligence engine. Such research has immediate medical implications as well as enormous potential in computing and robotics. An experimental system involving closed-loop control of a mobile robot by a culture of neurons has been successfully created and is described here. This article gives a brief overview of the problem area and ongoing research. Questions are asked as to where this will lead in the future.
