Moscow’s MIPT researchers develop ‘cyberbrain’ for artificial intelligence

12 Feb '13
The Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) is applying nanotechnology to develop special ‘smart’ memory for computers, which will be capable of emulating the way the human brain functions, the TV Center website reports.

According to Alexander Spiridonov, an MIPT postgraduate, the new system could change resistance when impacted by the flow of electrical current. “In the future, this will help reduce the size of a computer while exponentially increasing its capacity. And longer term, this is expected to lead to the development of self-learning systems, which is artificial intelligence,” he said.

The developers likened their ‘recipe’ for the new system to a flaky pie crust. A special surface is first coated with platinum particles, followed by titanium oxide, and then once again by platinum particles. A scanning microscope is used to see how much of each of the ‘ingredients’ to put, they explained.

The primary market for the future ‘cyberbrain’ is the defense sector that seeks independence from microelectronics developed by international majors. MIPT’s first samples of the invention have already been tested, TV Center reports an MIPT statement, to show that “our product will be competitive.”
