The brain is an ideal template for next-generation computing architectures. We, at NeuRonICS lab IISc, have developed a hybrid architecture  that combines a silicon neuron, acting as the computing unit, with a 2D nanosheet of molybdenum sulphate, acting as a memristor that works like a synapse . This can improve power use and performance in IoT-based edge devices.
