Stochastic Computing
The methodology of Stochastic Computing (SC) was first discussed in 1967 for use in the then still unreliable CMOS circuit technology. The aim was to develop fault-tolerant arithmetic with as few components as possible. However, the concept fell into oblivion when CMOS technologies were mature and practically error-free. SC was only rediscovered this century for data-intensive tasks such as complex control systems and error correction in GHz communication.

At the IIC, we want to explore the basic concept of Stochastic Computing and its general properties and limitations, as well as hardware-related implementations. We will use the application example of intelligent brain-machine interfaces to develop and test specific systems.
