Comparison of the Digital Neuromorphic Hardware SpiNNaker and the Neural Network Simulation

Advanced processor technologies

The APT group researches advanced and novel approaches to processing and computation, with an emphasis on identifying novel ways to exploit the formidable complexity of the multi-billion transistor microchips available today.

Our research into computer technology began more than 50 years ago with the construction of the world's first stored-program computer. Today the emphasis of the research is on identifying novel ways to exploit the formidable complexity of the billion transistor microchips that semiconductor technology will make commonplace over the next decade.

The APT group welcomes approaches from potential postgraduate students who are interested in studying for an MPhil or PhD with the group and we are keen to identify companies and other academic groups who are interested in collaborating with us in our research programmes.

Research focus

Our research is focussed on the following specialist areas:

  • CPU chip on white background
  • SpiNNaker
