The 21st century is the age of information. However, as information technology accelerates, the hardware that supports it will consume infinite amount of power and communication bandwidth. A completely new hardware technology is required to create a sustainable society for the next 100 years. The operating principles of biological neural circuits are now attracting attention as a potential source of such technology. Their resilience and energy-saving properties, which have been refined through long evolution, are exactly what is required to build a sustainable society. In our laboratory, we are extracting useful technologies from neural circuits and applying them to the next generation of information processing hardware. We utilize highly versatile circuit technology and material technology to create a variety of functions.
