Spatially-Separated Chirality Inspired Networks

Project description

Harnessing topological materials in a more ‘brain-like’ neural network architecture

Although the brain looks like a mass of spaghetti, it is made up of approximately 86 billion nerve cells forming some 100 trillion interconnections. Further, these interconnections are highly ordered, such that different brain regions subserve different functions. In the current physical neural network architectures resulting from neuromorphic engineering, achieving this kind of interconnectivity has been a barrier. The EU-funded SCHINES project is addressing this challenge, bringing together world-class researchers to deliver a new type of architecture with scalable interconnectivity leveraging the exotic properties of topological materials.
