Neuro-inspired pattern recognition

Jan. 22, 2019
Pattern recognition is a cognitive task that humans are especially good at; identifying a visual or auditory stimulus (and being able to act accordingly) is an essential quality for the survival of living beings. With this in mind, it is ...

Coherence and synchronization in complex quantum networks

Nov. 28, 2018
The transport and storage of quantum information both within and across complex quantum networks is crucially affected by the presence of environment-induced noise. Interaction with the environment deteriorates the quantum properties initially present and this is important both for the ...
