Frontiers in Nanoscience webinar series: Step out of the ordinary to find out the extraordinary

(Nanowerk News) IMDEA Nanociencia organizes a new series of online global seminars called Frontiers in Nanoscience.
The first webinar in this series will be held on June 15th at 18:30 (CET) through Zoom and will stage the frontiers of Neuromorphic Computing.
The goal of these series of webinars is to showcase some of the very best and promising researchers to present and discuss exciting new advances at the frontier of nanoscience.

The selected guest speakers will cover groundbreaking topics and will focus their talks on present cutting-edge research in a way that could be understood to colleagues outside their specific field, transcending the obstacles imposed by the specialized terminologies and techniques that characterize different branches of Nanoscience.
The first seminar will be held on June 15th at 18:30 (CET) and will be introduced by Prof. Ivan K. Schuler from UCSD and Dr. Javier del Valle, Ambizione Research Fellow at University of Geneva. The seminar will take us to the fascinating realm of Neuromorphic Computing.
This emerging research field may overcome some of the challenges that traditional computing is facing by mimicking the architecture and components of biological neural networks.
In this talk, you will see how resistive switching can be used to imitate the functionalities of the two building blocks of a neural network: neuron and synapse. The seminar will focus especially on the resistive switching caused by the voltage-triggered insulator to metal transition, discussing aspects such as its underlying mechanism, dynamics and its spatial distribution.
IMDEA Nanociencia will also show some of our recent efforts towards emulating neuronal behavior using this phenomenology. Participants will have the chance to ask questions and Prof. Rodolfo Miranda, director of IMDEA Nanociencia will be the moderator.
Join this journey to step out of the ordinary to find out the extraordinary.
