Advances in Neuromorphic Memristor Science and Applications

By Massimiliano Versace | August 13, 2012

This recent book, part of the Springer Series in Cognitive and Neural Systems (Editors Robert Kozma, Robinson E. Pino, and Giovanni E. Pazienza), is one that may become part of Neurdons bookshelves. In "Advances in Neuromorphic Memristor Science and Applications", the main researchers behind the pioneering work on memristors and their applications to bio-inspired machine intelligence review the state of the art and predict trends. The Abstract: Physical implementation of the memristor at industrial scale sparked the interest from various disciplines, ranging from physics, nanotechnology, electrical engineering, neuroscience, to intelligent robotics. As any promising new technology, it has raised hopes and questions; it is an extremely challenging task to live up to the high expectations and to devise revolutionary and feasible future applications for memristive devices. The possibility of gathering prominent scientists in the heart of the Silicon Valley given by the 2011 International Joint Conference on Neural Networks held in San Jose, CA, has offered us the unique opportunity of organizing a series of special events on the present status and future.

As for future events dedicated to memristors, I would like to signal a memristor symposium August 28-29 The Conference Network Science and Reconfigurable Systems for Cybersecurity Conference in Wash DC August 28-29 is another interesting event. Finally, there will be a Special Session/Workshop at IJCNN2013 in Dallas, August, 2013 .

About Massimiliano Versace

Massimiliano Versace is the director of the Boston University Neuromorphics Lab. The lab focuses on the study of biological intelligence with the goal of embedding the derived fundamental principles in bio-inspired computers and robots. His research interests are focused on neural networks – in particular applied to spiking-based neural models of learning and memory in the cerebral cortex. With a few colleagues, he founded Neurala LLC in 2006 to commercialize brain-based software. For more info, visit his website
