Scientists design artificial synapses for neuromorphic computing

June 1, 2023

The human brain has been called the most complicated object in the universe. Trying to replicate that still-unmatched capability for computing, scientists at Los Alamos National Laboratory have made a new interface-type memristive device, which their results suggest can be used to build artificial synapses for next-generation neuromorphic computing.

Memristive devices, or memristors, represent long-sought circuit technology that, unlike current resistor technology, has both programming and memory capabilities—memristors could remember which electrical state they were in when powered off, a human brain-like ability that opens up new possibilities for computing and devices.
