I was first introduced to chaos theory and to complexity theory back in 1990. I wanted to pursue it but financially couldn’t but it remained and remains an interest. Watching Dr. Chua (in “the Chua Lectures”) is catching up and I’m actually glad that enough time has passed that technology has been catching up to the theories, making ideas like “the edge of chaos is how we can order from entropy” not crazy nor just a computer simulation with no basis in reality and proves that it’s quite real.
Really glad to see that memristers not only were made experimentally in a lab but that the technology is already being used to produce novel technologies.
I’m also really glad that Dr. Chua got vindication. The book “Perceptrons” by Minsky caused the first AI winter, setting back research for a decade or more and watching Dr. Chua prove Minsky was undeniably wrong using a technology built by Toshiba in a new camera implementing his memristers, is satisfying.
