Prof. Peter Bobbert (TU/e, CCER) is the co-author of the Nature paper Classification with a disordered dopant atom network in silicon of Jan. 15, 2020.
The paper shows that devices exploiting the correlated hopping of electrons on a network of boron dopants in silicon can perform complex classification tasks, like written character recognition. This can lead to a new energy-efficient platform for Artificial Intelligence.
