Which of the following companies will announce a new neuromorphic chip or system by 30 June 2023?
In September of 2021, Intel announced its second generation neuromorphic chip (Intel). Neuromorphic computing promises increased computational power and decreased energy consumption, both of which are needed to fully realize the potential of Artificial Intelligence (Forbes, Quanta).
This question will be resolved using official announcements posted on the newsrooms or media pages of each of the companies.
A neuromorphic chip is a single piece of integrated circuiting (IC) hardware capable of native neuromorphic computing. A neuromorphic system is a system that is composed of one or more neuromorphic chips. Typically, they comprise many chips to handle much bigger loads than a single chip is designed to handle. Because neuromorphic chips are not commercially available (unlike ordinary computing chips), such systems must be built and made accessible (through the cloud) by the manufacturers themselves, and assigned names, such as Pohoiki Springs. For the purposes of this question, any system that contains at least one neuromorphic computing chip and has been announced as such is a neuromorphic system will be considered a neuromorphic system.
