A multidisciplinary team of researchers from the Tickle College of Engineering are working with ORNL on neuromorphic computing.
Neural Networks have the potential to change the way the Department of Defense operates. With advancements to Neural Networks occurring rapidly, the sky is the limit for military utilization of this technology.
“We used Titan to run different scenarios through the brain, keeping the ones that worked and ‘killing off’ the ones that didn’t,” said Mitchell. “It’s the neuromorphic equivalent of survival of the fittest.”
Memristors – a combination of the words memory and resistor – are devices that allow for increasingly faster, more complicated processing than simple binary- based computing.
