Exploring Neuromorphic computing at Lawrence Livermore National Lab

Lawrence Livermore National Lab is exploring the application of Neuromorphic computing to problems of interest within the Advanced Science and Computing (ASC) program.  This effort is part of the larger DOE Beyond Moore’s Law Computing program.  In this talk we will give an overview of a number of laboratory applications, describe our efforts to map them to the TrueNorth architecture, and show case our initial results.  These applications range from object recognition in cluttered images, to detecting numeric instabilities in ALE-based simulation codes, to exploring heuristic graph optimization problems.
