Reservoir-computing based associative memory and itinerancy for complex dynamical attractors

Reservoir-computing based associative memory and itinerancy for complex dynamical attractors

Index-based reservoir-computing memory In the “location-addressable” or “parameter-addressable” scenario, the stored memory states within the neural network are activated by a specific location address or an index parameter. The stimulus that triggers the system to switch states can be entirely unrelated to the content of the activated state, and the pair linking the memory states …

How it will impact us, model civility

So, which path is it for AI and us? Armageddon or enlightenment? Alex Hummel  |  For the Oshkosh Northwestern Does the name “HAL 9000” ring a bell? HAL was the artificially intelligent (and authentically diabolical) computer in 1968’s landmark film “2001: A Space Odyssey.” Despite his/its programmed politeness, HAL, uh … let’s just say HAL …

Impacts of internet access and use on grain productivity: evidence from Central China

Impacts of internet access and use on grain productivity: evidence from Central China

Measurement of technical efficiency Stochastic frontier analysis (SFA) has been widely used to calculate the TE of grain production at the farm level (Latruffe et al., 2004; Cullinane et al., 2006). We choose the trans-log production function rather than the Cobb-Douglas function in analyzing input factor substitution. This choice is supported by the likelihood ratio …

Quantum computing for several AGV scheduling models

Quantum computing for several AGV scheduling models

AGV scheduling problems have many classifications according to different scenarios and considerations. For example, consider the time window of the task, joint optimization of scheduling and path, cooperation with other devices, charging strategy and so on. Due to the limitation of quantum bits of CIM, it is impossible to solve the AGV scheduling problem in …

The potential use of artificial intelligence for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis and management: clinician and healthcare informatician perspectives

The potential use of artificial intelligence for venous thromboembolism prophylaxis and management: clinician and healthcare informatician perspectives

Healthcare informatician—respondent characteristics Of 101 respondents to the healthcare informatician survey, a majority were greater than 40 years old (54.5%), male (62.0%), and white (70.1%) (Table 1). Respondents could identify as more than one role; most were clinicians (44.6%), followed by data scientists (36.6%). Most respondents reported that they had been practicing in informatics for more than …

Spike-based dynamic computing with asynchronous sensing-computing neuromorphic chip

Spike-based dynamic computing with asynchronous sensing-computing neuromorphic chip

Design philosophy Whether leveraged as small stand-alone applications or employed as edge nodes to build larger systems, edge devices call for edge hardware with unprecedented low latency and low power. In theory, neuromorphic intelligence is well suited for edge computing scenarios as it can perceive and process information sparsely. In this work, we propose a …
