Informatikkolloquium der TU Graz: Mike Davies

Informatikkolloquium an der TU Graz:

Friday, March 16th, 2018 – 10.15 – HS i3

Mike Davies, Intel Labs (Portland, USA)

 

Dear Colleagues and Students,

it is a pleasure to invite you to the following talk of Mike Davies from Intel Labs (Portland, USA)

 

Title:

Intel’s Loihi research chip and our vision for neuromorphic computing

 

Description:

At Intel, we see neuromorphic computing as a promising direction to address some fundamental challenges facing computing today.  In this talk I explain our perspective and hopes for this field.  I then describe our Loihi research chip, covering its architecture and novel asynchronous design approach, and I conclude with an overview of our progress to date developing software, algorithms, and applications for it.

Bio:

Mike Davies leads Intel’s neuromorphic computing research as head of its newly formed Neuromorphic Computing Lab.  Mike joined Intel in 2011 via the acquisition of Fulcrum Microsystems, a company Mike helped start in

2000 to commercialize high-performance asynchronous design methodologies pioneered at Caltech.  At Fulcrum, Mike led the development of five generations of industry-leading datacenter switch products.  Since joining Intel Labs in 2014, Mike and his team have developed a series of neuromorphic prototype chips, most recently Loihi.  Mike holds BS and MS degrees from Caltech in computer engineering, mathematics, and electrical engineering.
