Why neuromorphic engineering?
Can we analyze it?
Digital computers process information
Animal brains process information too
Brains may be more than computers...
Why engineers should study biology
Reason 1: Understanding neural computation
Energy efficiency as a metric
Where does the energy go?
Digital closes in on analog...
Reason 2: The end of semiconductor scaling
An aside: Neurobiology is interconnect
Where does the end of scaling leave us?
Artificial neural silicon?
Neuromorphic engineering today
The verdict (1999): Mixed
Understanding the representation
A broadened definition
