With the developments of machine learning, Artificial Intelligence (AI), and Internet of Things (IoTs) technology, it is necessary to process massive amounts of data in an energy-efficient way. Brain-inspired neuromorphic devices have attracted increased attention for artificial intelligent applications. Designing neuromorphic devices that could mimic essential synapse-like functions is of great importance for brain-inspired computation. This is becoming an important branch of artificial intelligence and neuromorphic engineering that will inject new vitality into the development of artificial intelligence in the future. With the development of new materials technology and new conceptual devices, several kinds of neuromorphic devices have been proposed, including two terminal resistance switch devices and three terminal transistors. Moreover, memtransistors have been reported with interesting neuromorphic functions. Especially with the adoption of nanomaterials and nanostructures, including nanodots, nanowires, 2D materials, and hybrid nano-configuration, advanced neural cognitive behaviors have been mimicked. In addition, a multi-terminal structure also endows new neuromorphic system opportunities. All these achievements indicate the great potential of neuromorphic devices in neuromorphic engineering.
Moreover, inspired by the powerful perception functions of human multi-sensory learning activities, developing an artificial perception system is of great significance for artificial intelligence and humanoid robots. So far, neuromorphic devices have been proposed for applications in constructing artificial perception systems with complex sensing functions as this will provide intelligent robots with new vitality.
We are pleased to invite you to contribute original and review articles regarding neuromorphic devices and their applications in an intelligent perception system. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: two terminal memristors for neuromorphic computing applications, three terminal neuromorphic transistors, nano-structure with specific neuromorphic functions, the integration of advanced nanomaterials for advanced neuromorphic computation, neuromorphic device arrays for advanced neural functions, an artificial intelligent perception platform with functional nanomaterials, etc.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.
