Lighting up artificial neural networks with optomemristors

Posted by in categories: biological, nanotechnology, robotics/AI

A team of international scientists have performed difficult machine learning computations using a nano-scale device, named an “optomemristor.”

The chalcogenide thin-film device uses both light and to interact and emulate multi-factor biological computations of the mammalian brain while consuming very little energy.

To date, research on hardware for and machine learning applications has concentrated mainly on developing electronic or photonic synapses and neurons, and combining these to carry out basic forms of neural-type processing.
