'Artificial Synapses' Mimic Neurons, Hint at Brainy Computers
"A brain-inspired computing component provides the most faithful emulation yet of connections among neurons in the human brain, researchers say. The so-called memristor, an electrical component whose resistance relies on how much charge has passed through it in the past, mimics the way calcium ions behave at the junction between two neurons in the human brain, the study said. That junction is known as a synapse."
How Quantum Computing Will Change Your Life
"Over a century ago, the advent of quantum theory rocked humanity. Now, we can manipulate the quantum world, opening our eyes to a powerful new age featuring quantum computers and quantum cryptography."
Self-learning neuromorphic chip that composes music
"Today, at the imec technology forum (ITF2017), imec demonstrated the world's first self-learning neuromorphic chip. The brain-inspired chip, based on OxRAM technology, has the capability of self-learning and has been demonstrated to have the ability to compose music."
Seeker inspires us to see the world through the lens of science and evokes a sense of curiosity, optimism and adventure.
