Energy efficiency through neuromorphism

Jani Mäkipää, Markku Åberg

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review


    Biological systems are energy efficient in their information processing. These systems use techniques different from conventional artificial electronic systems to achieve this. Concepts found in in neurobiological systems can be exploited to build faster, more energy efficient and robust electronic systems. It also seems possible that these concepts can be replicated on silicon. Properties and concepts of neural systems are discussed here to give the basic understanding of these systems and possibilities there are in making use of them. Also link between Shannon's Theorem and biological information processing is shortly discussed.
