UC San Diego physicists have created new artificial devices that mimic basic learning functions carried out by neurons in the human brain. They demonstrated how quantum materials could be used to develop new devices that can “learn” to switch between functional states.
UC San Diego researchers have generated a new map of brain connectivity from a part of the brain called the basal ganglia, a hub for regulating motor and behavior functions. The breadth of connections revealed could potentially open avenues for intervention of Parkinson’s disease and other disorders
Neural network training could one day require less computing power and hardware, thanks to a new nanodevice that can run neural network computations using 100 to 1000 times less energy and area than existing CMOS-based hardware.
UC San Diego scientists have created new brain maps with unprecedented detail. The insights provided by the new maps are helping answer questions about blood supply and how more active parts of the brain are kept nourished versus less demanding areas.
UC San Diego physicists are discovering details about the fundamental properties of exotic particles known as excitons. Their findings include pinpointing a visual phenomenon tied to a new state of matter as well as the first confirmation of exciton superfluidity.
Four faculty members from UC San Diego have been awarded 2021 Sloan Research Fellowships, awards designed to support “extraordinary” early career researchers.
Researchers from MIT have succeeded in developing an artificial intelligence (AI) approach to detect electron correlation – the interaction between a system’s electrons – which is vital but expensive to calculate in quantum chemistry.
Thanks to NSF-funded supercomputers including Comet at the San Diego Supercomputer Center at UC San Diego, the research community has been making progress on developing more reliable and efficient batteries that may power tomorrow's electric vehicles and other products.
New study suggests that how electrons interact in solids may be key to understanding the emerging phases of quantum materials.
Based on the precise measurements reported in this study, researchers hypothesized what mixtures of bulk ingredients could give the TRAPPIST-1 planets their densities, offering the most precise picture of exoplanet composition achieved to date.
