The workshop is the longest-funded NSF workshop, with over 25 years of continuous support. The workshop has resulted in many new collaborations and scientific publications from participants, and has trained over 2000 participants. See this unfiltered list of recent google scholar citations mentioning "Telluride Neuromorphic". A few of the articles, papers and books resulting from workshop collaborations are highlighted below, see also Videos from past workshops to see a few examples of real time demonstrations.
Former workshop participants have founded startups (e.g. Intan Technologies, (intel) Nervana, Pixium Vision, inilabs, inivation, Chronocam, insightness, TeraDeep), have taken leadership positions at large industry (Amazon, Google, Intel, Comcast, Qualcomm), or are now professors at leading Universities (e.g. Yale, Purdue, Stanford, UCSD).
Past workshop participants have 2 out of the top 10 cited papers over the last decade at the IEEE Journal of Solid State Circuits. The cross-disciplinary nature of the workshop is shown by participants technical program organization at major scientific/technology conferences spanning electronics, computer vision, AI, robotics, and neuroscience, including ISSCC, ISCAS, BioCAS, CVPR, NIPS, SFN, and ARVO. Workshop organizers and participants have over 200,000 scientific citations.
