Neuromorphic computing is an amalgamation of Very-Large-Scale-Integrated (VLSI) systems and software. These chips are named as neuromorphic chips because they are modeled on biological brains and constructed out of millions of neurons. Size of these chips is small enough to be comfortably placed inside electronic devices and human body. The requirement for neuromorphic chip surges with the rising need for Internet of Things (IoT) and data analytics. The encouragement behind designing neuromorphic chips is to build a platform for executing large scale real-time simulations to benefit neuroscience research.
The neuromorphic chip market is witnessing huge growth due to rising demand for artificial intelligence across the globe. Emerging data and connectivity requirements are the major factors behind the adoption of artificial intelligence in healthcare sector. The development of robotics, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, gene editing and 3D printing is expected to support healthcare industry with rapid advancements. Scientists are using organic nano carriers to deliver chemotherapy drugs for treating brain tumors. Companies like IBM and Google are spending millions of dollars on artificial intelligence (AI) research. In robotics, researchers are examining autonomous robotic surgery. AI helps in achieving fast and accurate diagnostic results in the healthcare industry. Some of the diseases require immediate action, failing which leads to more serious consequences. In some recent studies on artificial neural networks by researchers, it has been observed that these networks have the ability to diagnose accurately and in a timely manner.
Moreover, consumer inclination toward smaller and cheaper products leads to the need for miniaturization of integrated circuits. These factors are likely to spur the growth of the global neuromorphic chip market. With the emergence of smart technologies, smart sensors are being used in many industries including consumer electronics, automotive and healthcare. However, because of miniaturization of devices, the complexity of hardware designing is increasing day by day, which is a factor restraining the growth of the global neuromorphic chip market.
