—Neuromorphic computing is an emerging technology that support event-driven data processing for applications requir-ing efficient online inference and/or control. Recent work has in- troduced the concept of neuromorphic communications, whereby neuromorphic computing is integrated with impulse radio (IR) transmission to implement low-energy and low-latency remote inference in wireless IoT networks. In this paper, we introduce neuromorphic integrated sensing and communications (N-ISAC), a novel…
