The workshop brought together 35 key investigators in this area and several representatives from funding agencies, with the aim to assess the current state of the field, to explore the potential for existing and new approaches and to identify those areas that provide currently the greatest opportunities and may need particular emphasis. It was evident from the high quality of the presentations that the field is making excellent and rapid progress. This is especially so for the special purpose systems that are modeled after biological sensory input systems such as retinas, cochleas and networks for sound localization. The development of larger systems for more complex problems such as vision, speech recognition, tactile sensing and robotics lies still in the more distant future. It was agreed that the field should make use of currently available technologies although research into new materials, devices and interconnection methodology should be continued at an active level.
