Lecture on neuromorphic computing by Prof. Kwabena Boahen, Stanford University

Kwabena Boahen is Professor of Bioengineering and of Electrical Engineering at Stanford University and one of the key innovators and godfathers of neuromorphic computing. His doctoral work involved designing and fabricating a silicon chip that emulates the functioning of the retina. This research laid the foundation for his groundbreaking contributions to neuromorphic engineering. In his talk here he will talk about a new generation of computer chips that work 3d.

Lecture Title: Scaling Knowledge Processing from 2D Chips to 3D Brains
Time: Thursday, 30.05.2024, 19:00 (sharp)
Location: 66/E34 - Barbarastraße 12, 49076 Osnabrück

For Prospective Students:

Bachelor Cognitive Science

This program is designed for you to explore the different fields within Cognitive Science, all while building a solid foundation in the core areas of Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Modelling, Computational Linguistics, Neurobiology, Neuroinformatics, Neuroscience, Philosophy of Mind. 

Master Cognitive Science

This Master Program allows you to refine your knowledge in Cognitive Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, Linguistics and Computational Linguistics, Neuroinformatics and Robotics, Neuroscience, and Philosophy of Mind and Cognition. You will build on your research skills through lab rotations, a year-long study project, and your master's thesis.

Master Cognitive Computing

The Cognitive Computing Program specializes in studying computational models of cognitive abilities. This course addresses working professionals who will continue to work in parallel to their studies. Graduates of this program are able to use their acquired skills for the development of innovative intelligent systems and services. 

Cognitive Science Student Journal

The Cognitive Science Student Journal publishes student works from all disciplines of Cognitive Science. In the Kaleidoscience Podcast students get a chance to talk about their own ideas and projects.
