MemrisTec Summer School 2023
The MemrisTec Summer School 2023 will take place in Dresden from September 14th to September 19th and its research aligns with the SECAI research focus area AI Compute Paradigms. Several researchers of SECAI are involved in the Summer School. The summer school is covering the topics of the research programme Memristive Devices Toward Smart Technical Systems.
Memristors are nanoelectric devices capable of storage and computation. Their specific properties make it possible to integrate significantly more memory than before in a very small space and to create novel, biologically inspired networks for information processing.
This creates electronic circuits whose performance is significantly greater than that of conventional semiconductor solutions. The highly efficient and faster memory technologies are better able than conventional technologies to meet the challenges of the Internet of Things. Due to their high efficiency and small size, memristors also allow the development of highly sensitive biosensors, which are particularly interesting for medical technology.
Such sensors can be used, for example, to detect cancer cells very sensitively at low concentrations. Moreover, memristors are particularly well suited for imaging the learning behavior of synapses in neuromorphic electronic systems, i.e. the development of artificial brains. That is, in the future, computers may be created that can “think” and “learn” with memristors. In addition, a multitude of other possible applications is conceivable.
