Physical Fault Tolerance of Nanoelectronics

One of my results shows how devices perform error correction naturally (physical fault tolerance), and how it compares to fault-tolerance achieved using circuits. (Published in the Physical Review Letters, in a highlight article by the American Physical Society, and cited in several leading online news organizations) One of the implications of this work is that ultra-small nanodevices will most likely not help in prolonging Moore’s scaling laws, and new approaches, such as brain-inspired computing, are required to take computing and information processing platforms to the next level. One of my ongoing research interests is to explore different brain-inspired models of computation.
