Creating a Novel Synaptic Device: Exploring Capacitors’ Potential for Neuromorphic Computing

Artificial synapse made using capacitors

In-memory computing is being rethought in a way that creates an artificial synapses capable of storing and processing data.

In the era of AI’s emergence, it is essential to have efficient computational methods for processing and storing large data sets. Current computer designs are limited in performance.

In recent years research has focused on developing alternative computing architectures which mimic the brain. These devices, known as neuromorphic computer, overcome many of the problems associated with traditional von Neumann architecture. This architecture has existed since 1945 and consists of processing and memory unit.
