Technological evolution offered by Moore's law does not progress anymore as it did before.  More and more the high-energy consumption inhibits further progress. New approaches that are more energy efficient and have the potential to solve complex tasks are therefore in demand. The human brain, though, is an example showing that nature can offer much more computational power with much less energy consumption. In this talk I will give an overview of the field of brain-inspired computing and then review our most recent research in the field of opto-electronic memristors for neuromorphic computing applications.
