In an effort to electronically mimic neurons—the nerve cells of the brain—scientists from HRL Laboratories, LLC have successfully demonstrated novel electronic neuron circuits that exhibits as many as 23 known behaviors of biological neurons and the three classes of neuron activation (excitation) that code information between neurons about sensory events, cognitive processes, or motor actions.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, will leverage electronic brain-cell technology for a new computer architecture that promises more compact, energy-efficient, and capable systems. The program is part of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency program Foundations Required for Novel Compute (FRANC).
HRL’s scientists have successfully mapped HRL’s neuromorphic video object recognition algorithms developed previously under the DARPA Neovision2 program to a spike-domain neural computational framework under the DARPA SyNAPSE program.
In a step toward computers that mimic the parallel processing of complex biological brains, researchers from HRL Laboratories, LLC, and the University of Michigan have built a type of artificial synapse.
HRL Laboratories, LLC, announced today it will continue groundbreaking work developing electronics that simulate the cognitive capabilities of biological intelligence in the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (DARPA) Systems of Neuromorphic Adaptive Plastic Scalable Electronics, or SyNAPSE program. Since October 2008, HRL has been leading an industry/academic team of experts in a fundamentally new approach …
