Russians’ Report Memristors

LAKE WALES, Fla.–The perceptron invented by Frank Rosenblatt in 1957 and popularized in Marvin Minsky and Seymour Papert’s 1969 book Perceptrons: An Introduction to Computational Geometry may no longer be just theory. Russian and Italian scientists, led by Vyacheslav Demin at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and the National Research Center Kurchatov Institute (Moscow) have described a perceptron in detail in a paper by Demin and his collaborators titled Hardware elementary perceptron based on polyaniline memristive devices. Marvin Minsky passed away on Sunday (January 24). The most exciting element of their perceptron was the polymer-memristor they constructed from organic polyaniline (PANI)—a highly conductive polymer that has been used as the active electronic component in experimental non-volatile memories. It was created by Demin’s team which also included scientists from…
