15.11.2019: FUTURE CHALLENGES FOR NEUROSCIENCES AND COGNITION // First talk by Benoit MIRAMOND

Topic: Neuromorphic Computing // SAVE THE DATE // 15.11.2019 at Inria Sophia Antipolis (9.30-11.30 AM)

NeuroMod starts a new lecture serie "Future challenges for neuroscience and cognition", which will welcome Benoit Miramond as its first speaker on "Neuromorphic computing", on Friday November 15th, from 9:30 to 11:30AM at INRIA (Sophia Antipolis), room Euler violet.

The questions he will address are following: What is neuromorphic computing? What are the applications? What are the physical limits? How close is it from biology? How could a closer mimetism with biophysics improve neuromorphic computing in terms of e.g. energy consumption, learning and generalization capabilities, anagogic computation versus spike computing?

Benoît Miramond is Full Professor at the LEAT Lab (Laboratoire d’Electronique, Antennes et Télécommunications) from Université Côte d'Azur. He is currently the head of the Neuromorphic Engineering Group from LEAT. He is leader of the international ANR project SOMA (neural-based Self-Organizing Machine Architecture) in collaboration with INRIA at Bordeaux, LORIA at Nancy and HESSO in Geneva from 2018 to 2021. In this context, his research is following an interdisciplinary approach to explore novel adaptive hardware architectures inspired from neurosciences and cognitive sciences for embedded AI applications.
