LASCAS 2021 gathers a remarkable group of distinguished speakers.
Keynote: "Our Brain and Heart are Made of Memristors Poised Near an Edge of Chaos"
This talk presents a stunning new discovery which
reveals the complex nonlinear dynamics of the human
brain and heart is based on locally-active memristors operating
near an edge of chaos domain of less than 2 micro Amperes . Yet
this diminutive Goldilocks zone is structurally stable , thereby providing
a new thermodynamic basis for human intelligence , and stable heart
beat , anchored upon the foundation of a surreal 3D-surface dubbed the
Hodgkin-Huxley magic roof.
Leon Chua is the inventor of the memristor, the Chua Circuit,
and the Cellular Neural Network . His papers were cited more
than 80,000 times , and has an h-index of 125 , as of 04/08/2020 .
He is a recipient of 17 Docteur Honoris Causa from major European
Universities and from Japan.
He was elected a member of the Academia Europaea , and the
Hungarian Academy of Sciences . Most recently , he was awarded
the 2019 IEEE EDS Celebrated Member Award (the highest honor
from the IEEE Electron Devices Society ) , and
the 2020 Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics .
