5th International Conference on Emerging Electronics

Hosted by- Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, India

Tutorials: November 25th

Tutorial 1 : Neuromorphic Computing

"Sensors to Systems"

Date: November 25th

Neurobiological processing systems are remarkable computational devices. Their basic computing elements, the neurons, are slow, heterogeneous and stochastic in nature, and yet they outperform today's most powerful computers at real-world tasks such as vision, audition, and motor control. When compared with digital computers, the brain consumes much less power (~20W) and is highly adaptive. Neuromorphic engineering is an interdisciplinary approach to the design of information processing electronic systems that are inspired by the function, structural organisation, and physical foundations of biological neural systems. This tutorial will introduce to the neuromorphic computing paradigm including the neuromorphic sensors (mainly vision and audition) and the neuromorphic systems.

Who Can Attend?

1. Graduate students (ME/MTech/PhD), post-doctoral fellows, and faculty from academic/technical institutions.

2. Any professional working in scientific research or industry working in development and application of Neuromorphic Computing.
