NanoLund and Hub AI present a colloquium on Brain-Inspired Computing.

The field of brain-inspired (or neuromorphic) computing is an emerging field of new ways to design hardware that functions more like the human brain, in order to enable more efficient and better performing neural networks and machine learning applications. 

Date and Time: Monday 6th December, 16-17

Location: K-space room in the Q-building of Fysicum

Speakers

Mattias Borg:
Mattias is senior lecturer and project manager at the Nano Electronics department of Lund University and principal investigator at NanoLund. Among other things, his research focuses on a class of neuromorphic devices that use ferroelectric memory to implement artificial synapses in hardware. He is also a research scientist at MISEL (https://www.misel-project.eu/), an international collaboration that has implemented these ferroelectric devices in an intelligent vision system that performs visual sensing and processing in a manner inspired by the human eye and brain. 

Lars-Erik Wernersson:
Lars-Erik is a professor at the Nano Electronics department at Lund University with extensive research output relating to nano-electronic devices. He researches, among other things, resistive memory cells that can be used as synapse devices in brain-inspired hardware, collaborating with Mattias Borg on certain projects. Lars-Erik is also the principal investigator representing Lund in the previously mentioned MISEL project.

Stanley Heinze:
Stanley is an associate professor at Lund University, a researcher in functional zoology and principal investigator at NanoLund. He leads the biology side of a collaborative project in which he looks inside the brains of insects, mapping and identifying the neural structures that the animals use to orient themselves in their external environment. Stanley and his colleagues have successfully identified certain navigational centres in the brains of bees which can be built and recreated using nano-electronic hardware to realise highly efficient optoelectronic neural networks.

David Winge:
David Winge is a researcher at NanoLund and a postdoctoral fellow at the synchrotron radiation research division of the dept. of physics at Lund University. He represents the physics side of the previously mentioned insect brain project that Stanley Heinze is involved with. They have been successful in recreating neuromorphic circuitry implemented with III-V semiconductor nanowires that mimic the functionality and structure of navigational centres in the insect brain central complex.
