IIT Roorkee Workshop in Brain-Inspired Computing
Workshop "Brain-Inspired Computing”
March 24, 2021
Dept. of EEE, The University of Sheffield, UK and Dept. of ECE
Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee
Applications are invited to IIT Roorkee for a workshop in "Brain-Inspired Computing" on 24th March 2021.
Modern computers are based on the von Neumann architecture in which computation and storage are physically separated. It has been evaluated that, for many computing tasks, most of the energy and time is consumed in data movement rather than computation. One promising solution is the Brain-inspired architecture that leverages the distributed computing of neurons with localized storage in synapses.
