Neuromorphic computing with multi-memristive synapses [pdf] (nature.com)

This is quite neat! Memristors are still pretty hard to control, so the idea here is to use a few and some intelligence in controlling them. The claim that ". The work presents a significant step towards the realization of large-scale and energy-efficient neuromorphic computing systems" seems pretty reasonable.

For those curious, I make a slide deck about the concept of memristors back when I interned with one of the profs on this paper: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/13h7D-QlO4JsES-BUgHgd...

Have they built the chip, or is this another simulation?

Looks like it's a simulation of a NN based on the response of a chosen memristor type to pulsing.

From my skim the results are simulation, but the labs involved also have actually fabricated these memristor devices so very feasible that's next step. One step at a time...
