and event-based sensing alternatives

Abstract: In an unconstrained world, autonomous agents like robots need low
latency and power consumption, requiring optimal performance with compact and
efficient hardware in limited space. Meeting the demand for faster systems,
smaller devices, and accurate responses is a complex challenge. Bioinspiration
and in-memory computing offer alternatives to traditional architectures. The
combination of event-driven sensing with its microsecond-level latency; and
parallel computation, where a hundred billion neurons consume a mere 20 watts
(equivalent to an energy-saving light bulb), presents a highly promising
technology. I will provide an overview of these technologies, discussing their
potential and limitations, backed by studies conducted at the Event Driven
Perception for Robotics laboratory.
