A system design approach to neuromorphic classifiers
MetadataShow full item record
This work considers alternative strategies to mainstream digital approaches to signal processing - namely analog and neuromorphic solutions, for increased computing efficiency. In the context of a speech recognizer application, we use low-power analog approaches for the signal conditioning and basic auditory feature extraction, while using a neuromorphic IC for building a dendritic classifier that can be used as a low-power word spotter. In doing so, this work also aspires to posit the significance of dendrites in neural computation.
