Introduction to Brain-inspired Computing (Autumn 2021)

The brain is powerful of cognitive tasks with a power consumption at only 20 Watt. As a contrast, today's AI based on von Neumann computers consumes megawatt in a similar task. Neuromorphic computing that emulates the working principles of the brain is thus emerging for the energy efficient cognitive computing.

The general aim of this course is to provide the participants basic knowledge of how the brain, as a natural powerful analogue computer, performs cognitive processes such as associative memory and recognition. This course concerns the emerging neuromorphic computing for potential applications in digitalization and connection in industry, Industry 4.0, AI, Big Data, self-driving vehicles, etc.
