Approaches to Artificial Neuron Processing: Phase Change Materials et. al.

Posted by:

IBM has announced multiple projects in its program to design a new generation of chips that might achieve orders-of-magnitude improvements in power and efficiency. The general model for this research is the low power consumption, highly connected, extremely flexible and adaptable human brain.

This week, the firm’s Zurich-based semiconductor unit published a report of their work in Nature Nanotechnolgy. The article describes their success at using phase change materials to create artificial neurons.
