Brainmorphic computing and expectations for physical devices
The previous issue featured a “neuromorphic system” that physically mimics the functions of neurons and synapses, which are the basic components of the brain. In this issue, the discussion will be further expanded to the level of the brain network, and we will explain “brainmorphic computing”, which is attempting to realize more advanced information processing that is closer to the brain through implementing structures and information processing style that are unique to the brain, as process and or dynamics of physical devices. Further, we will focus on the importance of the physical device in this framework.
