Spiking neural networks: Applications to computing, algorithmics, and robotics
June 27, 2019 – June 28, 2019
Workshop of the 3rd HBP Curriculum Workshop Series
Spiking Neural Networks (SNN) are a class of artificial neural networks in which information is transmitted by pulses or spikes. SNNs demonstrate outstanding information processing performance in biological organisms, supporting sophisticated algorithmic functions. This level of performance remains in many instances beyond the reach of modern systems and automation technology. The workshop will bring together experts from computational neuroscience, systems and control theory, and robotics. Discussions will explore current use of SNNs and draw perspectives of technological applications.
