In the early 20th century, the discovery of computers triggered by fundamental formulations of information theory and switches started a revolution that defines the current human civilization. In the early 21st century we expect another revolution when brain science will be understood and a movement will begin to implement those technologies and we have no doubt that Brain age machines will take over. Therefore, we welcome brain age machines to take over, the people who will play key role in this transformation to the new age, we invite them to this special issue and wish to carry out brain storming sessions in the articles on the paths of development. We plan to include those topics which are directly involved with this research of brain mimicking functionally, neurobiologically and outline of those projects which have undertaken this astronomical challenge. We will outline a road map of this century, how brain-like computing will advance forward. We will not remain confined in the domain of brain like computing, rather, we will try to find how many different research fields will be influenced by such activities. For example, materials science, electronics, robotics.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Information is an international peer-reviewed Open Access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
