Spiking neural networks (SNNs) are artificial learning models that closely mimic the time-based information encoding and processing mechanisms observed in the brain. As opposed to deep learning models that use real numbers for information encoding, SNNs use binary spike signals and their arrival times to encode information, which could potentially improve the algorithmic efficiency of computation. However overall system efficiency improvement for learning and inference systems implementing SNNs will depend on the ability to reduce data movement between processor and memory units, and hence in-memory computing architectures employing nanoscale memristive devices that operate at low power would be essential. The requirements and specifications for these devices for realizing SNNs are quite different from those of regular deep learning models. In this chapter we introduce some of the …
