Neuromorphic computing replicates the neural structure of the human brain to create algorithms that deal with the uncertainties of the natural world with far less energy compared to conventional computing.
Intel has developed one of the most notable architectures in the field: the Loihi neuromorphic chip.
Intel’s Lab tested the approach in a simulated 3D environment. In this setup, the robot actively senses objects by moving an event-based camera that functions as its eyes.
We now need to test the algorithm in the real-world with actual robots .“Our goal is to apply similar capabilities to future robots that work in interactive settings, enabling them to adapt to the unforeseen and work more naturally alongside humans”.MORE
