Advances in electron microscopy and data processing techniques are leading to increasingly large and complete microscale connectomes. At the same time, advances in artificial neural networks have produced model systems that perform comparably rich computations with perfectly specified connectivity. This raises an exciting scientific opportunity for the study of both biological and artificial neural networks: to infer the underlying circuit function from the structure of its connectivity.
