Intel’s Loihi CPU: A Neuromorphic Chip Modelled on the Human Brain
Neuroscience, with its huge volume of complex interactions, is a field that offers an enormous amount of insight for the potential of hardware architectures and algorithms. The behaviors and properties of biological neurons have, to date, proven difficult to model let alone replicate. However, while the vast majority of biological neuron interactions will remain a mystery for some time, simplified abstractions of neural networks are now possible.
Why Silicon Valley Isn’t Necessarily the Future of Electronics
Silicon Valley has always been the tech world's answer for Hollywood. Whilst it is still the home of big tech companies, exciting innovations, new start-ups, and where a lot of the money is, the seeds of tech's future are being sown in other cities across the globe—from Barcelona to London and beyond, let's look at how the rest of the world is catching up.
RISC-V’s Ted Marena Discusses his Career and the Benefits of an Open Set Architecture
The RISC-V Foundation believes their solution has paved the way for the next 50 years of computing design and innovation, and it’s easy to see why: RISC-V’s open set instruction architecture ensures a future of more extensible, long-lasting hardware. Western Digital’s Ted Marena, director of RISC-V’s ecosystem, talked to Electronics Point about his background and knowledge of the platform.
