Opinion: Intel’s Mike Davies Discusses Need for Neuromorphic Computing Benchmarks in Nature
In a Nature Comment article titled “Benchmarks for progress in neuromorphic computing,” Mike Davies, director of Intel’s Neuromorphic Computing Lab, calls for a standardized set of benchmarks to measure progress in the field.
“In order to deliver on such an ambitious agenda, the neuromorphic field needs to focus more on principles and rigour, less on open-ended exploration and mapping speculative mechanistic features to silicon. Steady progress to real-world value depends on quantitative metrics, discipline and informed prioritization.”
