Understanding Neuromorphic Computing

CATEGORIES : AI/AUTHOR : Ron Wilson

The phrase neuromorphic computing has a long history, dating back at least to the 1980s, when legendary Caltech researcher Carver Mead proposed designing ICs to mimic the organization of living neuron cells. But recently the term has taken on a much more specific meaning, to denote a branch of neural network research that has diverged […]

Inferring the Future of Machine Learning

CATEGORIES : AI/AUTHOR : Ron Wilson

Deep-learning networks have won. They have outscored humans in classifying still images—at least sort-of. They have defeated world champions at chess and go. They have become the tool of choice for big-data analysis challenges, from customer service to medical diagnosis. They have shown that, once trained, they can be compact enough to fit in a […]
