Insect-Brain inspired Neuromorphic Nanophotonics

Project description

Biomimetic chip for integrated sensing and neural computation

The EU-funded InsectNeuroNano project aims to develop innovative on-the-chip nanophotonic devices for integrated sensing and computation, inspired by the insect neural system. The technology will combine advanced knowledge of insect neurobiology for circuit designs and autonomous navigation with nanowire semiconductivity to exploit light for interconnection. It will exploit stable molecular dyes as novel memory components and use circuit technology for quantum computing. As proof of concept, InsectNeuroNano will recreate a pathway from insect-polarised light sensing to the memory circuits that integrate information to provide a continuous location estimate. The final goal is to create a chip that allows autonomous vehicle navigation without GPS. The developed neural components will then be used as building blocks in a wide spectrum of circuits.
