2018 Zenodo  
In September of 2017, Intel announced its Loihi neuromorphic research chip. This novel processor implements a microcode programmable learning architecture supporting a wide range of neuroplasticity mechanisms under study at the forefront of computational neuroscience. By maintaining the same locality of information processing and integrated memory-compute architecture as the brain, Loihi promises to provide highly efficient and scalable learning performance for supervised, unsupervised,
