Training for Brain on a Chip Using SNN

First I had heard of this detailed. Probably worth a look.

Brain-on-a-Chip Would Need Little Training  in CNN

KAUST Discovery (Saudi Arabia), April 20, 2021

Researchers at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia used a spiking neural network (SNN) on a microchip as a foundation for developing more efficient hardware-based artificial intelligence systems. KAUST's Wenzhe Guo said SNNs mimic the biological nervous system and can process information faster and more efficiently than artificial neural networks. The researchers created a brain-on-a-chip using a standard FPGA microchip and a spike-timing-dependent plasticity model, which allowed the neuromorphic computing system to learn real-world data patterns without training. Compared to other neural network platforms, the brain-on-a-chip was more than 20 times faster and 200 times more energy efficient. Guo said, "Our ultimate goal is to build a compact, fast and low-energy brain-like hardware computing system.".... '
