Quantum takes a Helium 3 bath A team of researchers from National Physical Laboratory, Royal Holloway University of London, Chalmers University of Technology, and Google have found that immersing superconducting quantum circuits in a bath of Helium-3 (3He) can cool down quantum circuits to almost 100 times lower than was possible before, to achieve under a thousand of a degree above absolute z... » read more

Efficient Neuromorphic AI Chip: “NeuroRRAM”

New technical paper titled "A compute-in-memory chip based on resistive random-access memory" was published by a team of international researchers at Stanford, UCSD, University of Pittsburgh, University of Notre Dame and Tsinghua University. The paper's abstract states "by co-optimizing across all hierarchies of the design from algorithms and architecture to circuits and devices, we present ... » read more

Memristive synaptic device based on a natural organic material—honey for spiking neural network in biodegradable neuromorphic systems

New academic paper from Washington State University, supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation. Abstract: "Spiking neural network (SNN) in future neuromorphic architectures requires hardware devices to be not only capable of emulating fundamental functionalities of biological synapse such as spike-timing dependent plasticity (STDP) and spike-rate dependent plasticity (SRDP),... » read more
