MoNETA Animat overview: IEEE

A great, if optimistic, overview of some of the intersections and confluence of memristor based artificial intelligence research and developments, from DARPA’s SyNAPSE project, in particular, the Animat Moneta (MOdular Neural Exploring Traveling Agent) project (from Boston University’s Neuromorphics Lab), in this months IEEE is worth the read: MoNETA: A Mind Made from Memristors – […]

Synaptic Plasticity Neural Modeling: Dissimilar Memristor Circuits.

Synaptic plasticity modeling may have another boost forward with a recent paper proposal from two Eastern researchers. In “Bottleneck of using single memristor as a synapse and its solution”, researchers Farnood Merrikh-Bayat and Saeed Bagheri Shouraki have stated they were able to more closely model a Hebbian synaptic plasticity model by demonstrating the phenomena under […]
