What is neuromorphic computing? Everything you need to know about how it is changing the future of computing

Most hardware today is based on the von Neumann architecture, which separates out memory and computing. Because von Neumann chips have to shuttle information back and forth between the memory and CPU, they waste time (computations are held back by the speed of the bus between the compute and memory) and energy — a problem known as the von Neumann bottleneck. As time goes on, von Neumann architectures will make it harder and harder to deliver the increases in compute power that we need. To keep up, a new type of non-von Neumann architecture will be needed: a neuromorphic architecture. Quantum computing and neuromorphic systems have both been claimed as the solution, and it’s neuromorphic computing, brain-inspired computing, that’s likely to be commercialised sooner.
