HyperRec: Efficient Recommender Systems with Hyperdimensional Computing


A group of researchers are taking a different approach to AI. The University of California at San Diego, the University of California at Irvine, San Diego State University and DGIST recently presented a paper on a new hardware algorithm based on hyperdimensional (HD) computing, which is a brain-inspired computing model. The new algorithm, called HyperRec, uses data that is modeled with bina... » read more

Synaptic transistors The University of Hong Kong and Northwestern University have developed an organic electrochemical synaptic transistor, a technology that could one day process and store information like the human brain. Researchers have demonstrated that the transistor can mimic the synapses in the human brain. It can build on memories to learn over time, according to researchers. Th... » read more

Flexible, hole-filled films Researchers from Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) and Hongik University propose a simple way to make flexible electrodes and thin film transistors last longer: adding lots of tiny holes. A major problem with flexible electronics is the formation of microscopic cracks after repeated bending which can cause the device to lose its conducti... » read more

Undoped polymer ink Researchers at Linköping University, Chalmers University of Technology, University of Washington, University of Cologne, Chiba University, and Yunnan University developed an organic ink for printable electronics that doesn't need to be doped for good conductivity. "We normally dope our organic polymers to improve their conductivity and the device performance. The proces... » read more
