Event description

Description

Spiking neural networks (SNN) are a special class of artificial neural networks (ANN), in which the information is transmitted by means of pulses (or spikes) rather than by firing rates. As SNNs have shown to be excellent control systems for biological organisms, they have the potential to produce good control systems for autonomous robots. This workshop aims to bring together neuroscientists with roboticists and computational researchers developing biologically-inspired learning algorithms for scientific and industrial applications.

In order to enrich the discussions of SNN and its applications to computing, algorithmics and robotics, we will have a hands-on session on spiking neural networks on the Neurorobotics Platform (HBP SP10).

This workshop will be part of the 2019 IEEE International Conference on Cyborg and Bionic Systems.

Participation fee: 90,00€
The fee does not include travel and accommodation. Fees will be collected after participants have been selected. Registration fee waivers are available for a limited number of participants per workshop. Participants can apply for fee waivers prior to the application deadline by sending an email to curriculum.edu@humanbrainproject.eu

Please check with your supervisor how your institution can support you with regard to expenses for the attendance of the workshops. Further information about organizations offering travel support can also be found on https://www.humanbrainproject.eu/en/education/student-community/.
