This chapter describes an NBIC project that is supported through an Office of Naval Research Multidisciplinary University Research Initiative grant. This project presents an example illustrating the synergies emerging from the convergence of nanotechnology, biotechnology, information technology, and cognitive science. Next-generation CNN (Cellular Neural/Nonlinear Network) visual computers will be enhanced by nanoscale sensors, biologically-inspired circuitry, and new, wave-type computing principles. These new generations of systems will have the performance necessary for real-time applications in real-world environments, and they will aid human cognition.
