Watch it now online: Niels Taatgen at the TechTalks050

The computer of the future

Prof. Niels Taatgen took the podium at the first TechTalks050 and discussed Neuromorphic Computing and the new generation of computers that CongiGron is working on. He argued that current computer technologies are reaching the limits of their possibilities regarding speed and energy-efficiency. In contrast, the brain – which can be seen as a kind of computer – uses only 25 watts and is quite efficient. Researchers are therefore looking at how the neurons of our brains function and what favourable properties our brains possess. The results are looking promising for the development of the smart and energy-efficient computer of the future.
