ALS Colloquium Tomorrow on Memristors and Neuristors

The Advanced Light Source will host a colloquium tomorrow (Jan. 24) presented by R. Stanley Williams of Hewlett Packard Lab. His talk is titled “Mott Memristors, Spiking Neuristors and Turing Complete Computing with an Electronic Action Potential.” The lecture will explore William’s bio-inspired route to extremely low-power transistorless computation and observation that the thermally-induced first order phase transition from a Mott insulator to a highly conducting state in correlated-electron transition-metal oxides resembles the opening of ion channels in the cell walls of neurons, which have been shown by Leon Chua to be ‘locally active’ memristors.
