Title: Are long time-constant Necessary or even Useful for computation?

Long time-constants are expensive and difficult to implement in hardware. Can long-term memory be formed without them? In other words, are long time-constants necessary? 

While perhaps not necessary, bio-inspired mechanisms are arising in SNNs adding long time constant to improve the computational power (Adaptation [1], Delays [2]). So maybe long time-constants are useful after all.

Let's discuss algorithms and neuroscience to find an answer!
