A research team from Northwestern University and the Netherlands' Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) has developed a neuromorphic chip that does not require training via external software.

Said TU/e's Eveline van Doremaele, "Our new chip can learn on-the-fly by processing patient data in real time, which certainly speeds up the training process and helps promote the use of the chip in real interactive bioapplications."

The researchers demonstrated that the chip’s smart biosensor can diagnose cystic fibrosis by detecting high levels of chloride in sweat samples, an indicator of the genetic disease.

Van Doremaele said her team’s research had “solved a major problem with regards to the use of neuromorphic computers in healthcare.”
