"Brain-inspired computing and haptic intelligence"


Shriram Ramanathan
Rutgers University

The presentation will focus on electronic phase transition mechanisms in quantum materials such as correlated perovskite semiconductors that can be used to emulate the characteristics of neurons and synapses in the brain and serve as building blocks for AI hardware as well as sensory interfaces for robotics. We will then discuss how features of intelligence noted in slime molds, insects, birds and mammals can be implemented in electronic devices and circuits for learning and decision-making. Mouse brain – perovskite interfaces as an example of bio-electronic information transfer will then be presented. Emergent connections to adjacent fields such as active matter will be pointed out.

Bio

S. Ramanathan is the inaugural holder of the Rodkin-Weintraub Chair in Engineering at Rutgers University since Fall 2022. Previously he has held faculty positions at Purdue University and Harvard University. Their group conducts research in oxide semiconductors for neuromorphic computing; opto-electronics and AI and extensively collaborate with diverse research groups across engineering and natural sciences.
