The Dept. of EEE, The University of Sheffield, UK, and Dept. of ECE, Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee is organizing an Online Workshop on Brain-Inspired Computing on March 24, 2021, from 4:30 pm onwards.
Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee is a premier public technical and research university located in Roorkee, Uttarakhand, India, headed by Director Ajit Kumar Chaturvedi. It is formerly known as the University of Roorkee and Thomason College of Civil Engineering.
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.
