Title: Memristor networks, an introduction
Abstract: The emerging field of neuromorphic computing aims to reduce the energy requirements of computing platforms. It draws inspiration from the functioning of the brain and wants to learn from its energy efficiency. For these new neuromorphic technologies dedicated hardware needs to be developed. It is suggested that memristors will play an important role within this new hardware. Memristors, are resistors with a memory storage that can act as non-volatile memory. In addition, because of their dynamical nature, memristors have high potential of mimicking the behavior of certain elements of the brain. In this talk, we introduce a mathematical framework to study the behavior of networks of memristors and we discuss research questions that arise about these networks.
