Scientist to create ‘Artificial retina’ which can detect sub-atomic particles


United Kingdom: The ability of human eye has inspired physicists to create a processor that can analyze the collisions of sub-atomic particles 400 times faster than possible currently.
In these collisions, protons – ordinary matter – are smashed together at close to light speeds.
These powerful smash-ups could yield new particles and help scientists understand matter’s mirror, antimatter.
The experimental processor could speed up the analysis of data from the collisions.
The algorithmic rule has been proposed for possible use in Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments to be carried out at Cern in 2020.
It could also be helpful in any field where fast, efficient pattern identification capabilities are required.
The ability of processor to recognize patterns extremely quickly is very much similar to the incredible such ability of retina.
