Scientists develop a memristor that can be conditioned just like a real synapse

Scientists develop a memristor that can be conditioned just like a real synapse The memristor is made of a silicon-oxygen-nitrogen material laced with clumps of silver nanoparticles at the electrical terminals.When current is applied across the memristor, the silver nanoparticles shuffle around within their parent oxynitride matrix, to line up within a lightning-bolt-like path of least electrical resistance.

IBM, US Air Force Are Building a Neuromorphic Supercomputer

IBM, US Air Force Are Building a Neuromorphic Supercomputer The new supercomputer will consist of 64 million neurons and 16 billion synapses, while using just 10W of wall power.Superficially, the two seem similar — brains, like CPUs, receive inputs, perform calculations based on those inputs, and then return a result.
