Spin based device architectures for neuromorphic computing and storage
EPFL-ETH Zurich Summer school 2022
Dates: 22-26 August 2022
Venue: Polydome PO 01, EPFL
Applications of recent developments in the field of brain inspired computing and artificial intelligence are being progressively implemented in modern every daily life, may it be speech recognition, image classification or text translation. Computing techniques based on magnetic components, such as magnetic RAM, have been applied in industrially produced applications and promise to offer more opportunities to improve speed and efficiency of computing operations.
This summer school will provide an overview of hardware implementations of neuromorphic computing techniques and then emphasize recent and novel approaches which are spin-based and promise a reduction in power consumption. The school will define basic concepts involved in realizing such devices as well as assess challenges in their compatibility with existing CMOS-based hardware. Combining lectures and exercises designed by experts from materials science over neuroscience to computer engineering as well as a round table discussion, this interdisciplinary school will benefit and stimulate participants from various domains ranging from machine learning to condensed matter physics.
