Let's talk about neuromorphic computing. Whereas traditional computers have processors and memory as discrete components, neuromorphic computing attempts to emulate the brain in that each functional element—each synapse—is both processor and memory. This radically-different approach to computing requires new hardware... Read more...
In the computing field, it can be extremely difficult to differentiate buzzword bunkum from meaningful messages. That's especially true when we're talking about emerging technologies and the products based on them. It seems like every other week there's a big announcement about an upcoming bit of tech that will... Read more...
With the proliferation of artificial intelligence in recent years, the term "neuromorphic" is being used much more often in the tech sector. If you're a native English speaker, you can probably surmise that neuromorphic means something along the lines of "brain-like." Indeed, the buzzword of the day is "neuromorphic... Read more...
Just when you thought you might have finally been getting a grasp on all of Intel's lake-inspired codenames, such as Coffee Lake, Ice Lake, Rocket Lake, and the list goes on, here is another codename to add to your mental repository—Pohoiki Beach, which consists of an 8 million-neuron neuromorphic system comprising 64...

The brain is the most complex organ in the body and the most difficult to unravel. Scientists have developed a variety of ways to better understand the brain, including the use of supercomputers. The world’s largest neuromorphic supercomputer, the Spiking Neural Network Architecture (SpiNNaker), was just switched on... Read more...
BrainChip has just announced a new add-in card that is specifically designed to accelerate neuromorphic computing. Neuromorphic hardware is tasked with mimicking the pathways of the human brain by using neural technology to process large amounts of data parallel in bursts or "spikes" over short span of time. In this... Read more...
