New Component for Brain-Inspired Computing

Posted by Peter Rudin on 27. May 2022 in News

Researchers from ETH Zurich, the University of Zurich and Empa have developed a new material to create electronic circuits that emulate the human brain, a research area that is part of neuromorphic computing.

Much like neurons, which are responsible for both data storage and data processing in the brain, scientists want to combine storage and processing in a single electronic component that are more efficient at performing machine-​learning tasks.

“These components come closer to real neurons than previous ones. As a result, they help researchers to better test hypotheses in neuroinformatics and hopefully gain a better understanding of the computing principles of real neuronal circuits in humans and animals”, says Prof. Giacomo Indiveri.
