Neuromorphic Chips & Power Demands

Research paper titled "A Long Short-Term Memory for AI Applications in Spike-based Neuromorphic Hardware," from researchers at Graz University of Technology and Intel Labs. Abstract "Spike-based neuromorphic hardware holds the promise to provide more energy efficient implementations of Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) than standard hardware such as GPUs. But this requires to understand how D... » read more

Neuromorphic electronics based on copying and pasting the brain

Abstract: "Reverse engineering the brain by mimicking the structure and function of neuronal networks on a silicon integrated circuit was the original goal of neuromorphic engineering, but remains a distant prospect. The focus of neuromorphic engineering has thus been relaxed from rigorous brain mimicry to designs inspired by qualitative features of the brain, including event-driven sign... » read more
