This post contains the videos of the Boston University team presentation during the recent DARPA SyNAPSE site visit occurred in August 2010, in Palo Alto. This presentation talks about the ongoing projects undertaken by the Boston University team in SyNAPSE since March 2010, with some of our most recent results and plans for the near future.

It was less than 24 hours ago since the last post echoing an article on the NYT on memristors, and two more articles have appeared on both the NYT and CNN with the reports of the announcement, made on Tuesday by HP, that it would commercialize a new computer memory technology with Hynix, the South Korean chip maker.

Dr. Snider and his colleagues at HP have built an integrated hybrid circuit with both transistors and memristors. Memristor crossbars are a very promising technology that can ultimately lead to building very dense hybrid chips, several times denser than synapses in the human cortex. Also, memristors have shown the potential to mimic the learning functions of synapses in neural networks. Memristors will the key technology that HP and its academic partner, Boston University, will leverage in the SyNAPSE grant.
