Description

The Missing Pieces of the Puzzle
We, as a community composed of neuroscientists, neuromorphic engineers, roboticists and theoreticians have been trying to understand neural processing and computation from different perspectives. During the course of research each of us tries to solve the complex puzzle of the brain by identifying the relevant functions and features of each piece of the puzzle. The boundaries of the computational puzzle pieces, however, remain blurry and the puzzle itself is incomplete.

The aim of this year’s Capo Caccia neuromorphic engineering workshop is to translate our understanding from the different viewing angles into a cohesive description. During this workshop we are going to identify the missing pieces and their computational roles. This will sharpen our understanding of the individual pieces and allow us to not only to emulate the abstracted computations but also to formulate hypothesis how to test these newly identified functions.

The workshop has open and highly interactive discussion sessions in the morning or the afternoon; hands-on projects, tutorials, and hardware and software jamming sessions during the day; and free-form discussions in the evenings.

The workshop is open to everybody, but since resources are limited, we will accept only a limited number of registrations, on a first-come first-serve basis.
