Abstract


Despite their enormou
s computational powers, digital

computers today are inferior to humans
in such tas
ks, like seeing

events happening in front,
perceiving and recognizing them

by intuition and
association, a
nd making a decision to take an

immediate action. It is very unli
kely that computers will
become

intelligent as humans in such a sense by just increas
ing the

number of transistors on CPU chips
following the Moor

s law.

In this paper, we will discuss
how we can approach the problem
by learning
from biology as well as psychology of their computing

principles. We are deve
loping a new
-
paradigm
computing

sys
tem adaptive to such human
-
like intelligent information

processing. This is going to be
done by
b
est utilizing the state
-
ofthe
-
art silicon technology. Fo
r this end, we have developed a

series of
VLSI chips each dedica
ted to specific brain
-
mimicking

proces
sing using digital, analog
as well as mixed
-
signal circuit

technologies. Applications of th
e system to perception of still

images as well as moving
image
s are presented as illustrative

examples.
