In this paper we present a very exciting overlap between emergent nanotechnology and neuroscience, which has been discovered by neuromorphic engineers. Specifically, we are linking one type of memristor nanotechnology devices to the biological synaptic update rule known as spike-time-dependent-plasticity (STDP) found in real biological synapses.(More)
Event-driven visual sensors have attracted interest from a number of different research communities. They provide visual information in quite a different way from conventional video systems consisting of sequences of still images rendered at a given "frame rate." Event-driven vision sensors take inspiration from biology. Each pixel sends out an event(More)
Computation with spiking neurons takes advantage of the abstraction of action potentials into streams of stereotypical events, which encode information through their timing. This approach both reduces power consumption and alleviates communication bottlenecks. A num-ion of action potentials into streams of stereotypical events, which encode information(More)
In this paper, a chip that performs real-time image convolutions with programmable kernels of arbitrary shape is presented. The chip is a first experimental prototype of reduced size to validate the implemented circuits and system level techniques. The convolution processing is based on the address-event-representation (AER) technique, which is a(More)
This paper proposes an algorithm for feedforward categorization of objects and, in particular, human postures in real-time video sequences from address-event temporal-difference image sensors. The system employs an innovative combination of event-based hardware and bio-inspired software architecture. An event-based temporal difference image sensor is used(More)
Address-event representation (AER) is an emergent hardware technology which shows a high potential for providing in the near future a solid technological substrate for emulating brain-like processing structures. When used for vision, AER sensors and processors are not restricted to capturing and processing still image frames, as in commercial frame-based(More)
