5 May 2017: Online press conference

Interested journalists and bloggers were invited to join a press-event held on 5 May 2017 (starting at 14:00 CEST) on the occasion of the goundbreaking ceremony for the new European Institute for Neuromorphic computing (EINC) buidling at Heidelberg University (Germany).

After an introduction into the research topic of Neuromorphic Computing by the sub-project leader Karlheinz Meier journalists had the opportunity to ask questions.

The press conference was open to be attended online via a WebBrowser with Adobe Flash. Questtions regarding neuromorphic computing were asked via the Q&A text chat window and answered by the attending researchers.

5 May 2017: Breaking the ground for the EINC

The breaking the ground ("erster Spatenstich") ceremony for the new European Institute for Neuromorphic computing (EINC) buidling at Heidelberg University (Germany) took place on 5 May 2017. The building will become the new home of the Electronic Vision(s) group, which is running the BrainScaleS platform in HBP.

Available: The talk (German language) given by Prof. Meier at the ceremony in the morning.
