Creating complexity: toward atomic spin-based neural hardware

Project description

Atomic spins could energise the ICT and computing industries

Nearly half a century ago, Intel co-founder Gordon Moore predicted that the number of transistors on a chip would double every two years, dramatically increasing computing power while decreasing cost. His prediction held true for decades, but it has been in gradual decline, in large part due to the energy and heat issues associated with packing so many transistors into increasingly small spaces. The EU-funded SPINAPSE project is following nature's lead, drawing insight from the brain's unbelievably low energy consumption despite the amazingly high speed and power of its "calculations." The team is developing novel brain-inspired hardware based on atomic spins for pioneering ICT computational paradigms.
