Memristors power quick-learning neural network

The network, called a reservoir computing system, could predict words before they are said during conversation, and help predict future outcomes based on the present.



Next-gen computing: Memristor chips that see patterns over pixels

Faster image processing could have big implications for autonomous systems such as self-driving cars, says Wei Lu, U-M professor of electrical engineering and computer science. Lu is lead author of a paper on the work published in the current issue of Nature Nanotechnology. Lu's next-generation computer components use pattern recognition to shortcut the energy-intensive process conventional systems use to dissect images. In this new work, he and his colleagues demonstrate an algorithm that relies on a technique called "sparse coding" to coax their 32-by-32 array of memristors to efficiently analyze and recreate several photos. Memristors are electrical resistors with memory -- advanced electronic devices that regulate current based on the history of the voltages applied to them.

Inspired by how mammals see, a new "memristor" computer circuit prototype at the University of Michigan has the potential to process complex data, such as images and video orders of magnitude, faster and with much less power than today's most advanced systems.

Let's have fun with Google Quick Draw.

#artificialintelligence

Quick Draw is a online game developed by Google. It is a very interesting game where you are required to draw something and then it tries to guess what you have drawn. It uses a neural network artificial intelligence to guess what the drawing is. It is simple game created by Google which is AI based as part of a project known as'A.I. The game is built by Jonas Jongejan, Henry Rowley, Takashi Kawashima, Jongmin Kim, with friends at Google Creative Lab and Data Arts Team.
