Brain-Inspired Computing: From Neuroscience to Artificial Intelligence

Brain-Inspired Computing: From Neuroscience to Artificial Intelligence

October 11th, 2019 – 10:30 – 17:30

Aula Magna Centro Servizi Policlinico - Via del Pozzo 71 – Modena (MO).

The aim of the workshop is to explore different aspects of neuromorphic computing: from biologically realistic models for computation to synaptic and neuromorphic electronics to drive the latest generation of artificial neural networks. Many industrial applications based on artificial intelligence (AI) have emerged and are all based on existing technology and computational paradigms. One of the main challenges for the future expansion of AI is to draw inspiration from the way human brain works in the development of new hardware and software emulating computation performed by neurons and synapses. This workshop will address this issue in a highly interdisciplinary scenario. We will explore areas of research apparently distant such as experimental and computational neuroscience, electronics, and informatics maintaining a common thread given by the performances shown by the nervous system, from energy consumption to highly parallelized cognitive tasks.
