Researchers have created a nanoelectrode network capable of copying complex neural networks. This is the first step towards creating truly neuromorphic chips that work like the human brain.
Researchers suggest using a nanoelectrode array, created by Donhee Ham and Hongkun Park, to copy a brain’s neural network from. The nanoelectrodes can record the electrical signals of each neuron in order to locate the interconnections and measure the strength of these. This system thus creates a real map of the brain.
A distant prospect
It would then be possible to paste this card on a three-dimensional high density network of memory to, in other words non-volatile memory such as SSDs or . The thus produced would have a low consumption as well as an improved learning ability, they would adapt to the environment, and would be endowed with increased capacities in autonomy and .
However, such technology is not yet topical. The human brain contains a hundred billion, with a thousand times more synaptic connections. It would therefore take a with 100,000 billion units of memory. For the time being, this is a long-term research project for Samsung.
