Workshop on Neuro-inspired Computing
Using Nanoelectronic Devices

Wednesday, October 25 2017 | Qualcomm Institute, UC San Diego

We invite you to the workshop on “Neuro-inspired Computing Using Nanoelectronic Devices”, Wednesday, October 25 at UC San Diego’s Qualcomm Institute.

This Workshop will bring together researchers from academia, industry and Army Research Lab to discuss recent advances in neuro-inspired computing and future directions towards building intelligent systems. ARO program managers who are interested in neuro-inspired computing will also attend this workshop to interact with the colleagues in this field.

Participants from materials/devices, neuromorphic circuits and algorithms communities will be asked to think of “neuro-inspired” in broad terms and brainstorm new holistic approaches towards developing efficient and robust neuro-inspired computation systems.

Neuro-inspired Computing Workshop will result in recommendations for how researchers from different areas can collaborate to expand traditional views of computing and machine intelligence toward completely new approaches utilizing specific strengths of materials, devices and architectures.

Registration is now full. If you are from UCSD, you can attend the workshop as longs as seating is available in the auditorium. If you are attending from outside of San Diego area, please contact workshop organizers.
