A step forward for neuromorphic computing: brain learning and forgetting functions reproduced using magnetic systems

A study led by the UAB and published in Nanoscale has managed to emulate neuromorphic learning abilities using thin layers of cobalt oxide, thus moving a step forward towards brain-inspired computers. This research was carried out in collaboration with the Alba Synchrotron (Barcelona), the CNR-SPIN (Italy), the Institute of Micro and Nanotechnology (Madrid) and the ICN2 (Barcelona).
