Neuromorphic Computing and Optoelectronic Intelligence
This is a conversation with Jeffery Shainline, who is a physicist at NIST with a specialty in optical computing and optoelectronics on different approaches to developing neuromorphic computing hardware for building artificial intelligence. The wide range of topics discussed include the physics and practice of existing computer processor manufacturing, super conductivity for computation, optical computing, loop neurons, machine learning, evolution, and how the brain works. Lex has been hitting it out of the park with some of his recent interviews, and this is another great one. Anyone with an interest in computer hardware and/or machine learning and artificial intelligence should find this discussion fascinating and informative.
