Kurzbeschreibung

The Doctoral College Resilient Embedded Systems, established in October 2018, provides the framework for discussing the future of computing with experts and deriving the necessary strategies not only for research and teaching but also for managing the inevitable ethical challenges that lie ahead.

 

In a keynote speech, Kaushik Roy (Edward G. Tiedemann, Jr., Distinguished Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering, Purdue University, USA) will talk about the need for neuro-inspired methods for re-engineering computing. Advances in machine learning, notably deep learning, have led to computers matching or surpassing human performance in several cognitive tasks including vision, speech and natural language processing. However, implementation of such neural algorithms in conventional "von-Neumann" architectures are several orders of magnitude more area and power expensive than the biological brain. Hence, fundamentally new approaches to sustain exponential growth in performance at high energy-efficiency are needed.
