Dr Akshay Kumar Maan

Akshay Kumar Maan completed his Ph.D. in Memristor-based threshold logic cognitive circuits at Griffith School of Engineering, Griffith University, Brisbane, Australia in 2015. The work is inspired by the principle of firing of neurons in the primate brain, and the ability of neuronal structures to perform different cognitive tasks, explores programmable (mem)resistance-based threshold logic memory networks that are shown to perform basic logic functions to highly involved cognitive tasks such as face recognition and fast moving object detection, in a parallel, scalable hardware architecture. His main areas of interest are brain inspired circuits, algorithms and systems, to enable more-than- moor era of low power, high density VLSI circuits for cognitive applications such as pattern recognition, face recognition and speech recognition.
