Researchers create a roadmap for neuromorphic brain-like CPUs

Jennifer Hasler with her FPAA
Like a startup company in search of a mission statement, neuromorphic engineering has yet to define for itself a clear path forward. There have been advances in a few select pockets — Synaptics’ touchpads, Foveon’s CMOS color imagers, or Sonic Innovation’s hearing aids may come to mind — but as a whole, the field knows neither what it wants exactly, nor how to do it. A roadmap to the future has recently been published by researchers from Georgia Tech. The end goal is nothing less than human-brain equivalent processing.
