We are working on a novel high-performance, highly-efficient, flexible, and robust brain-inspired computer hardware system. In particular, we focus on an information processing through physical complex-networked dynamical process, and its implementation as a computational hardware system using an analog VLSI as a core component. Toward to the final goal, we are developing integrated circuit and device technologies suitable for the brain-inspired computer systems, such as VLSI technologies for high-dimensional chaotic networks and large-scale complex systems, VLSI circuits and architectures for ultra-low-power asynchronous neural network systems, and compact and low-power devices/circuits for adaptive synaptic connections. At the same time, we are developing a massively-parallel brain-inspired computational system architecture, which is very much different from that of the conventional digital computers. We further intend to realize an autonomous brain-inspired computer with a sense of self and consciousness based on a complex network with dynamic change in spatiotemporal network state and structure.
