We present a simulation framework of differential-architecture crossbar arrays based on an accurate and comprehensive Phase-Change Memory (PCM) device model, enabling online learning in memristive neuromorphic recurrent neural networks (RNNs). The preprint of our paper is now available here.

Creating biologically realistic models for the underlying computations, especially with spiking neurons and for behaviorally relevant integration time spans, is notoriously difficult. We examine the role of spike frequency adaptation in such computations and find that it has a surprisingly large impact. Details on this research are now published on eLife.

PCM-trace is our new neuromorphic building block, which exploits the drift behavior of phase-change materials to implement long lasting eligibility traces, a critical ingredient of spike-based learning rules. The paper describing this novel solution has been accepted to the IEEE International Symposium on Circuits and Systems (ISCAS) 2021 (PDF).

In real-world applications, learning has to be fast, relying only on a few training examples. How can we achieve such fast learning in spiking neural networks? We have recently published our resarch on this topic in the preprint Revisiting the role of synaptic plasticity and network dynamics for fast learning in spiking neural networks.

Results of our comprehensive study for characterizing the relaxation dynamics of TiOx resistive RAM (RRAM) devices within a predefined volatility framework have been published (Part I: Characterization). In part II of this study, we have also presented a modeling framework that can account for RRAM relaxation characteristics (Part II: Modeling).
