Designing a neuromorphic 3D integrated chip – eeNews Interview

The project is inspired by the detection of light in eyes and the processing of visual information in brains

Understanding that todays compute architectures are not very sufficient in dealing with neuromorphic computing like our eyes and brain do, the NimbleAI team decided to tackle this with the design of a 3D neuromorphic processor with the sensor integrated.

The power of the design is the ‘event drive’ approach. The chip only processes feature-rich, critical sensor regions, making it more energy efficient, faster and smaller.

‘This design, this concept is useful, not only for us, but for many others’, explains Xabier Iturbe, project leader for the NimblaAI project in this eeNews Europe interview. Xabier Iturbe is a member of the HiPEAC network of computing systems researchers.
