How to model inhibitory synapses in the artificial neuron?

In the brain, some synapses are stimulating and some inhibiting. In the case of artificial neural networks, ReLU erases that property, since in the brain inhibition doesn't correspond to a 0 output, ...

Could a large number of interconnected tiny turing-complete computer chips be patterned across a wafer to simulate a programmable neural network?

The Intel 8080 had 4500 transistors and ran at 2-3.125 MHz. By comparison, the 18-core Xeon Haswell-E5 han 5,560,000,000 transistors and can run at 2 GHz. Would it be possible or prudent to simulate a ...
