‘Organismic Learning’ Mimics Some Aspects of Human Thought

– There’s a need for it actually coming up with models where the
memory is sort of embedded into the computing platform and be able to do in memory computing. So if we are able to have devices and if we can come with the
right kind of algorithms maybe we can be closer
to what the brain does. – We are working on
ceramic quantum material which is called samarium nickelates. We found that when we place this material in the hydrogen environment the hydrogen gas can be split into protons and electrons so this hydrogen can come in and out from the samarium nickelates. It’s very similar to like the
animals breathe air. We call our device as a organismoid. We make up this word, just
want to show the similarity between our device and the real organism because they both can
breathe, they can remember, they can forget. – That property’s very similar to what we call habituation and certain animals do actually
show that kind of behavior. So it turns out that if we can
use that habituation behavior for our synaptic plasticity what we observed is that not only you can learn new things but you’re able to actually forget old and not so important information.
