Seems very interesting! Register quickly if you want to attend. Interesting speakers, including Thomas BÃ¤ck of LIACS.
Dear neuroinformatics colleague,
please join us on the quest how the brain performs parallel computations so immensely energy efficient and fast: If you haven’t done so already, please register for the 11 May Brain-inspired computing workshop by tomorrow, so that we can get the catering right. Below you find the previous announcement.
Also note that the who-is-who component of our website is now finished: you can add yourself, your image and a personal banner to NeuroInformatics.NL (see who-is-who tab).
Looking forward to see you in May,
Previous announcement on the Brain-Inspired Computing workshop:
All should come to this workshop, as its primary intent is
to share thoughts and meet people. Originally the workshop
had the title ‘Unconventional Computing’.
That’s a very cool topic but also raised some questions:
is it about quantum computing, chemical computing,
amorphous computing, ternary computing, Domino Computation?
The new title ‘Brain-Inspired computing’ is a close match
to the five talks that will be presented in this workshop.
It will be very exciting to see how far we are in mimicking
the brain’s parallelism, energy efficiency and the use of
noise as a feature rather than a bug.
The workshop homepage is here:
Register on or before April 25th to get coffee and ‘borrel’.
