Neuromorphic systems aiming at mimicking some characteristics of the nervous systems of living humans or animals have been developed since the late 1980s', taking benefit of intrinsic properties and increasing performances of the successive silicon fabrication technologies. A regain of interest has been observed in the middle of the 2010s', which manifests itself from the emergence of large-scale projects integrating various computational and hardware perspectives, by the increased interest and
