Neuromorphic computers are computers in which their underlying architecture and function is inspired by biological neural systems. Neuromorphic computers promise the ability to do intelligent computing through neural network-style operation, but they do so faster, on lower power and with smaller footprint than traditional computer architectures, making them ideal for deployment into real-world environments and for applications requiring real-time performance. In this talk, an overview of the current state of neuromorphic computing will be presented, including a brief background on neuromorphic models, algorithms, hardware, and applications in the literature. Then, two neuromorphic models will be presented in detail: a fully digital architecture with both custom chip and FPGA-based implementations and a mixed analog-digital architecture with memristor-based synapses. Several applications of these two architectures will be presented to demonstrate the capabilities of neuromorphic systems in solving complex problems. These applications include a high-energy physics data classification application, a real-world anomaly detection application, and an autonomous robot control application.
