memristors2 nanometer nanowire memristors is a breakthrough for low power memory

University of Massachusetts researchers have successfully made a 2 nanometer individually addressable memristors. It is capable of being mass-produced in conventional fabs. This could be great for neuromorphic computing and AI in general. This should lead to high-density memristor arrays …

computersMemristor based equation solver could cut energy used by 100 times for longer lasting smartphones

Up until now small variations in the current passing through a memristor device was not precise enough for numerical calculations. The Nanoelectronics group, University of Michigan, got around this problem by digitizing the current outputs—defining current ranges as specific bit …

Scientists at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) have now unveiled the long-mysterious inner workings of these semiconductor elements, which can act like the short-term memory of nerve cells. Just as the ability of one nerve cell to …

artificial intelligenceNeural network powered by memristors

University of Michigan researchers created a reservoir computing system that reduces training time and improves capacity of similar neural networks. A new type of neural network made with memristors can dramatically improve the efficiency of teaching machines to think like …

computer architectureDubai plans roll out of chinese single passenger Ehang 184 self-flying pod taxis starting July 2017

Dubai has tested a Chinese prototype of a self-driving hover-taxi, its transport authority said on Monday, with the aim of introducing the aerial vehicle in the emirate by July. The test of the one-man electric vehicle comes as the city …

computer memoryF35B catches fire in midflight

The Marine Corps is investigating after an F-35B Joint Strike Fighter based out of Beaufort, South Carolina, recently caught fire in mid-air, Military.com has learned. The incident happened Oct. 27 at Marine Fighter Attack Training Squadron 501, a fleet replacement …

brainNanocrystalline diamonds grown on a diamond base enables anvil with 264 gigapascal of pressure and target is 1 terapascal which is the pressure at the center of Saturn

University of Alabama at Birmingham researchers will use pressures greater than those found at the center of the Earth to potentially create as yet unknown new materials. In the natural world, such immense forces deep underground can turn carbon into …

The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) hosted a Proposers’ Day Conference for the QEO program on October 26, 2015, in anticipation of the release of a new solicitation. Quantum Enhanced Optimization Program Description and Goals QEO seeks to …

computer architectureWill World War 3 have a lot of similarities to World War 1 and the Russian-Ottoman wars of the 1700s and 1800s

Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is meeting his French opposite number, Francois Hollande, Thursday evening, as France seems keener than ever to bring Russia in from the cold to join its anti-Islamic State (IS) coalition force. The meeting is going ahead …

AGIDARPA to Start Testing an Robot Submarine-Hunting Drone that will be 50 times cheaper than a Destroyer

Early in 2016, DARPA will begin testing a 132-foot unmanned submarine-hunting ocean drone in San Diego. The Anti-Submarine Warfare Continuous Trail Unmanned Vessel (ACTUCV) will be a persistent sub hunter similar to an underwater Predator drone. The 132-foot-long, 140-ton ACTUV …
