  1. This work explores the process of adapting the segmented attractor network to a lifelong learning setting. Taking inspirations from Hopfield networks and content-addressable memory, the segmented attractor network is a powerful tool for associative memory applications. The network's performance as an associative memory is analyzed using multiple metrics. In addition to the network's general hit rate, its capability to recall unique memories and their frequency is also evaluated with respect to time. Finally, additional learning techniques are implemented to enhance the network's recall capacity in the application of lifelong learning. These learning techniques are based on human cognitive functions such as memory consolidation, prediction, and forgetting.

  2. This work reports a spiking neuromorphic architecture for associative memory simulated in a SPICE environment using recently reported gated-RRAM (resistive random-access memory) devices as synapses alongside neurons based on complementary metal-oxide semiconductors (CMOSs). The network utilizes a Verilog A model to capture the behavior of the gated-RRAM devices within the architecture. The model uses parameters obtained from experimental gated-RRAM devices that were fabricated and tested in this work. Using these devices in tandem with CMOS neuron circuitry, our results indicate that the proposed architecture can learn an association in real time and retrieve the learned association when incomplete information is provided. These results show the promise for gated-RRAM devices for associative memory tasks within a spiking neuromorphic architecture framework.
