The Evolution of Bitcoin Hardware

The Evolution of Bitcoin Hardware

Beschreibung

Since its deployment in 2009, Bitcoin has achieved remarkable success and spawned hundreds of other cryptocurrencies. This seminar topic traces the evolution of the hardware underlying the system, from early GPU-based homebrew machines to today’s datacenters powered by application-specific integrated circuits. These ASIC clouds provide a glimpse into planet-scale computing’s future.

Brain-inspired computing

Brain-inspired computing

Beschreibung

The inner workings of the brain as a biological information processing system remain largely a mystery to science. Yet there is a growing interest in applying what is known about the brain to the design of novel computing systems, in part to explore hypotheses of brain function, but also to see if brain-inspired approaches can point to novel computational systems capable of circumventing the limitations of conventional approaches, particularly in the light of the slowing of the historical exponential progress resulting from Moore’s Law. Although there are, as yet, few
compelling demonstrations of the advantages of such approaches in engineered systems, a number of large-scale platforms have been developed recently that promise to accelerate progress both in understanding the biology and in
supporting engineering applications. SpiNNaker (Spiking Neural Network Architecture) is one such large-scale example, and much has been learnt in the design, development and commissioning of this machine that will inform
future developments in this area.
