Nano Neural Networks

Current neural networks are software constructs that run on computing devices. A new approach suggests the possibility of building neural networks into hardware using the structure of nanomaterials.

AI implications: Engineer’s model lays groundwork for machine-learning device – [sciencedaily.com]

In what could be a small step for science potentially leading to a breakthrough, an engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has taken steps toward using nanocrystal networks for artificial intelligence applications.

Elijah Thimsen, assistant professor of energy, environmental & chemical engineering in the School of Engineering & Applied Science, and his collaborators have developed a model in which to test existing theories about how electrons move through nanomaterials. This model may lay the foundation for using nanomaterials in a machine learning device.
