Advances in Neuromorphic Memristor Science and Applications

By Max Versace | August 13, 2012

The recent book Advances in Neuromorphic Memristor Science and Applications, part of the Springer Series in Cognitive and Neural Systems (Editors Robert Kozma, Robinson E. Pino, and Giovanni E. Pazienza), contains two chapters written by my colleagues and myself. 

Abstract: 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.
