Presentation Hall B1 SEMICON EUROPA > TechARENA 1 & 2 - Technological Platform for Innovation > Disruptive Computing
14:25-14:45 h | Hall B1 Tech Arena 2, Booth B1.770
Subjects: SEMICON EUROPA
In this presentation we will present most recent technological advances in neuromorphic computing and their readiness to serve energy efficient artificial intelligence applications from Cloud to the Edge, with emphasis on Edge AI applications and challenges. We will particularly present progress in memristive and phase-change technologies for neuromorphic devices and system archhitectures, in comparison with CMOS implementations. We will address questions such as : (1) will spike-based neuromorphic systems be more successful than the artificial neural networks and (2) can they really be much faster and more efficient than biology? We will outline trends and challenges in the path towards successful implementations of learning systems that could be ubiquitously deployed for a large variety of cognitive computing and sensing at the Edge.
