Roadmap to the Semiconductor Future

Roadmap to the Semiconductor Future

The International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors represents the major chip manufacturers across the world, and prepares a planning report (the "Roadmap") every two years (with updates between the reports) for future directions in integrated circuit manufacturing for computers and consumer electronics. The 10-page Executive Summary of the 2013 Edition includes an assessment of the near term (through 2020), with some projections of the longer term (through 2028).

Neuromorphic Computing

Neuromorphic Computing

The brain is a computer constructed from slow, non-uniform, unreliable devices on the 10┬Ám scale, yet its computational performance exceeds that of the best supercomputers in many respects, with much lower power dissipation. Neuromorphic computing studies the organization of neurons and interconnecting synapses to identify those features (such as massive device-level parallelism, adaptive circuitry, and content-addressable memory) that may be emulated in electronic circuits, and attempts to construct a new class of computers that combines the best features of both electronics and brains. This is being pursued worldwide, but an ongoing program funded by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) at IBM and HRL is featured in a recent article in MIT Technology Review
