MAY 15: European Neuromorphic Computing Event Aims to Bridge Gap Between Research and Innovation

April 12, 2024

In a bid to foster collaboration and innovation in the field of neuromorphic computing, the INL – International Iberian Nanotechnology Laboratory is set to host a one-day research event bringing together coordinators, participants, and collaborators from various European projects and industry partners.

Scheduled to take place on May 15, in Braga – Portugal, the event will serve as a platform for representatives from ten ongoing European research projects on neuromorphic computing. Additionally, two representatives from leading companies leveraging neuromorphic computing in their technologies will be in attendance.

The event aims to stimulate discussion on bridging the gap between scientifically sound technologies and practical innovation in neuromorphic computing. By merging discussions on technologies at different stages of maturity, the organizers hope to identify common approaches and best practices for advancing these technologies in Europe.

Key topics of discussion will include exploring available tools and addressing challenges that artificial neural networks and systems face in the realm of neuromorphic computing.

Representative examples from participating projects will cover a spectrum of neuromorphic approaches, including electronics, spintronics, photonics, and other emerging materials often integrated with CMOS. These technologies find applications in diverse fields such as computer vision, edge AI, sensing, computing, high-frequency data processing, deep learning, security applications, and signal regeneration.

Aside from networking opportunities, participants can also look forward to a social dinner, fostering informal discussions and collaboration beyond the confines of formal sessions.

The event promises to be an exciting opportunity for those interested in the future of computing and artificial intelligence to engage with cutting-edge research and industry developments. Interested parties are encouraged to participate and contribute to shaping the future of neuromorphic computing in Europe.
