Testing Brain-Inspired Chips for Big Data Problems at Berkeley Lab

“The von Neumann design has also led computing to its current limits in efficiency and cooling. As engineers built increasingly complex chips to carry out sequential operations faster and faster, the speedier chips have also been producing more waste heat. Recognizing that modern computing cannot continue on this trajectory, a number of companies are looking to the brain for inspiration and developing “neuromorphic” chips that process data the way our minds do. One such technology is IBM’s TrueNorth Neurosynaptic System.”
