This online article in Computing Now, the monthly online magazine of the IEEE Computer Society, features Neuromorphic Computing, which uses brain-inspired microarchitectures to attempt to generate brain-like performance with applications such as machine learning, image recognition, and cognitive computing. This article links to several other recent research articles in this field, on both hardware and software levels, including “Architecting for Causal Intelligence at Nanoscale,” by S. Khasanvis et al.

Moore’s Law: A Path Forward
A plenary talk at the recent International Solid State Circuits Conference in San Francisco (ISSCC 2016) was given by William Holt, VP of Intel. In going beyond CMOS, Holt discusses 3D heterogeneous integration and new memory technologies that will enable continuing improvement in processor performance into the future.
