Extremely dense neuromorphic networks may be based on hybrid 2D arrays of nanoscale components, including molecular latching switches working as adaptive synapses, nanowires as axons and dendrites, and nano-CMOS circuits serving as neural cell bodies. Possible architectures include ‘free-growing’ networks that may form topologies very close to those of cerebral cortex, and several species of distributed crossbar-type networks, ‘CrossNets’ (including notably ‘InBar’ and ‘RandBar’), with better… CONTINUE READING
