Neuromorphic Computing based on LEDs

For humans, driving a car in an unfamiliar environment is a comparatively simple exercise. For a computer, on the other hand, this task is extremely demanding and requires a lot of energy. Together, Professor Christian Werner from the OST Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Sciences and Professor Andreas Waag from the TU Braunschweig want to take a completely new approach to make computers more intelligent and less energy-hungry: With a neuron network of microscopic LEDs. For this, Werner has now become an associate member of the LENA research centre.
