Creating Computer Chips That Mimic the Brain’s Functions

Computer Chips that Imitate the Brain

A collaboration of multiple institutions, including the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)’s Argonne National Lab, has developed a material which can be used in computer chips to do exactly that. This is achieved by using \”neuromorphic circuitry\” and computer architecture that replicates brain functions. Shriram Ramanathan, a professor at Purdue University, led the team.

Subramanian Sankaranarayanan is a co-author of the paper and a joint employee of Argonne University of Illinois Chicago. \”We’ve created a device that allows machines to reconfigure circuits in a similar way to the brain.\”

This capability could allow artificial intelligence-based computer systems to perform difficult tasks more efficiently and accurately, while using less energy. Analyzing complex medical images is one example. Future examples include autonomous cars or robots in the space which could rewire circuits based on their experience.
