Neuromorphic Computing with Dr. Kwabena Boahen

Agenda


Thursday, June 22


6:30 pm EDT Neuromorphic Computing with Dr. Kwabena Boahen
An electronic current is made up of the flow of electrons. As engineers shrink electrical transistors down to nanoscale dimensions, electrons get trapped, making it difficult for digital computers to work as well as they should. In contrast, our brains have nano-sized channels through which tiny charged particles pass freely when they are opened. Dr. Boahen's team creates computer technology that mimics the way our brains are wired.

Presented by Dr. Kwabena Boahen, Professor, Bioengineering and Electrical Engineering, Stanford University
