BEYOND! von Neumann Computing
May 18th-21st, 2016
- The workshop “BEYOND! von Neumann Computing" addresses essential challenges and aims at identifying key questions towards the establishment of Neuromorphic hardware. Paying tribute to the topic’s nature, the workshop targets a highly interdisciplinary audience.
- Participants will be selected from multiple scientific disciplines spanning physics, computation, neuroscience and biology.
- The list of invited speakers follows the international and interdisciplinary approach of the BEYOND! workshop concept.
Topics to be covered
- Brain inspired computing concepts
- Beyond von Neumann hardware
- Spatio-temporal networks as neuromorphic hardware
- Delay networks as neuromorphic hardware
- Novel devices for hardware neurons
