Large-scale neural hardware systems are trending increasingly towards the \"Neuromimetic\" architecture: a general-purpose platform that specializes in hardware for neural networks but allows flexibility in model choice. Since the model is not hard-wired into the chip, exploration of different neural and synaptic models is not merely possible but provides a rich field for research: the possibility to use the hardware to establish useful abstractions of biological neural dynamics that could lead to a functional model of neural computation.
