Artificial Neural Network Impulse Communications
Neural communication is a crucial process that drives our nervous system, our adaptive response, our learning and our survival. Evolution has refined our nerves as a system of biological synapses that carrying signals throughout our bodies. Researchers have attempted to replicate this function in devices through programmable electronics. However, replicating the chemical processes involved in neural communications and its responsive yet compliant nature is a greater challenge that requires smart soft materials.
What is happening now
Current efforts to produce Artificial neural network impulse communications have led to the advent of electronics which are widely used in contemporary devices. However, these technologies bypass the chemical processes and soft materials present in synapse communication, and thus reduce the compatibility of implementing these technologies within the human body.
Our Vision for our Research
Our current research is geared towards electronically functionalizing the response of liquid crystal materials to create smart behaviour with electrical impulses. We are currently experimenting with unconventional communication methods including liquid transfer.
