Approximately 100 billion neurons compute in parallel, establishing these connections and transmitting information via electrical and chemical signals.
Memristors are a new type of storage and memory that could help future AI systems understand data and make more use of it.
That s the concept behind HPE s architecture for computers intended to mimic brain operations.
HPE researchers took memristors developed in labs and arranged them in a grid-like structure, which was then hooked up to a computer called the Dot Product Engine.
The researchers managed 8,000 calculations in one clock cycle in one specific memristor setup.
Any kind of computation in a neuromorphic chip is still approximate, based on probabilities, and may not be entirely accurate.
