We Just Created an Artificial Synapse That Can Learn Autonomously
In Brief A team of researchers has developed artificial synapses that are capable of learning autonomously and can improve how fast artificial neural networks learn. Mimicking the Brain Developments and advances in artificial intelligence (AI) have been due in large part to technologies that mimic how the human brain works. In the world of information technology, such AI systems are called neural networks. These contain algorithms that can be trained, among other things, to imitate how the brain recognizes speech and images. Now, researchers from the National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Thales, the University of Bordeaux in Paris-Sud, and Evry have developed an artificial synapse called a memristor directly on a chip. In the human brain, synapses work as connections between neurons. Better AI AI systems have developed considerably in the past couple of years. Soon, we may have AI systems that can learn as well as our brains can — or even better.
