Neuromorphic engineering has promising future

Whether it’s autonomous robotics, computer science or biomedical technology, neuromorphic engineering has its hand in the future of every field. Kurtis Cantley, assistant professor in the department of electrical and computer engineering, is the principle investigator of the Cantley Research Group, which studies neuromorphic architectures and nano-systems. According to Cantley, neuromorphic engineering has been around since the late 1980s, but interest has only recently taken off due to progress from the neuroscience community in understanding how the brain works and new electronic device technologies such as memristors and resistive random access memories. Neuromorphic engineering has application across many fields, including prosthetics and treatment of neurological diseases. “One of the ultimate things we want to do is to have the ability for our circuits to communicate bi-directionally with neurons in the…
