Unconventional Computing (CS492A) @KAIST in Fall 2024

The past decades have seen an exponential growth in digital computing, captured by Moore's Law. This has arguably left a blind spot on alternative approaches to data processing.

In this experimental course we survey, and look into, some of these “unconventional” computing paradigms.
