Neuromorphic: Rensselaer Researchers To Design The Next-Generation Supercomputer

With a $1.3 million grant from the Air Force Research Laboratory, researchers at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute will explore the design and potential of next-generation supercomputers that incorporate a highly efficient “neuromorphic” processor, which more closely represents the human brain in its architectural design. In the Rensselaer project, titled “Massively Parallel Modeling and Simulation of Next-Generation Hybrid Neuromorphic Supercomputer Systems,” researchers …
