EVENT TYPE: REGULAR SESSION
SESSION 3A
Brain-inspired, Bio-engineering, and Emerging Computing
Moderator:
Debashis Sahoo - Univ. of California, San Diego
The emerging field of brain-inspired computing and bio-engineering computing has the potential to revolutionize the technology world. This session will showcase the state-of-the-art developments relevant to this fast-developing world of emerging computing. The first paper proposes an in-storage computing (ISC) solution that performs hyperdimensional computing (HDC). The second paper presents the near-data-processing accelerator for 𝑘-mer counting. The third paper develops a practical synthesis flow called PathDriver for the design automation of microfluidic biochips. The fourth paper introduces a Cascaded Echo State Network (CESN) to accelerate the detection efficiency and increase the robustness for MIMO-OFDM systems.
