Nano memory cell can mimic the brain’s long-term memory

Alex KlokusMay 13th 2015
  • Researchers at the MicroNano Research Facility (MNRF) have built the one of the world’s first electronic multi-state memory cell which mirrors the brain’s ability to simultaneously process and store multiple strands of information.
  • The research builds on RMIT’s previous discovery where ultra-fast nano-scale memories were developed using a functional oxide material in the form of an ultra-thin film – 10,000 times thinner than a human hair.
  • While these new devices are able to store much more information than conventional digital memories (which store just 0s and 1s), it is their brain-like ability to remember and retain previous information that is exciting. Nano-scale memories are precursors to the storage components of the complex artificial intelligence network needed to develop a bionic brain.
