Kurzbeschreibung

Can novel physical computer architecture and functionalities be used to enhance the calculation speed of advanced mathematical problems? Similar to quantum computers which are expected to solve a defined class of mathematical problems on very short time-scales, we search for a novel adaptive philosophy of computation technology to calculate different problems similar to the human brain and thus in a much more flexible and efficient way than common technology. Thus, artificial nanofiber networks with new electronic, magnetic, mechanical and other properties will be prepared by electrospinning and tested in experiment and intense simulation with respect to their abilities to work as bio-inspired cognitive computing units.
