    Electronic, Light-Powered Chip Delivers Smarter AI

    Article obtained from Photonics RSS Feed.

    A chip that brings together imaging, processing, machine learning, and memory is enhancing artificial intelligence by imitating the way the human brain processes visual information.

    The device is inspired by optogenetics; the biotechnological tool allows scientists to dive into the body’s electrical system by stimulating and manipulating neurons with laser light. It’s made from ultrathin black phosphorous, which changes electrical resistance in accordance with different wavelengths of light. Shining different colors of light onto the chip enables functions such as imaging and memory storage.

    Because the device integrates multiple components and functions onto a single platform, similar to the human brain, it is able…
