Artificial neural networks are being applied to increasingly complex problems like automatic object recognition in video or the optimization of membrane processes. Compared to the implementation of such networks on common computing architectures, natural neural networks like the human brain show significantly higher degrees of parallelism and connectivity, while requiring only a fraction of the energy to operate.

In order to leverage these properties and to create more life like neural networks, synaptic plasticity can be implemented trough ion transport in polymer electronic devices.

This thesis will focus on the synthesis and improvement of the organic components in such a neural network. Ultimately a simple system with ability to learn can be implemented.

We offer:
