Nengo Brain Camp: brain builders' open houseExport this event to calendar

Friday, June 16, 2017 — 4:00 PM EDT

Waterloo's Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience invites everyone to an open house, the culmination of a two-week workshop that teaches researchers how to build sophisticated brain models. These international experts will demonstrate large-scale brain models running on laptops, robots, and specialized brain-like computers while simulating neural functions.

Simulations describe visual saccades, visual tracking, the effects of stress on cognition, multi-sensory perception, multi-agent interactions, and the effects of learning biases, amongst many other things. Many of these simulations reproduce cognitive behaviours using new kinds of robotic devices and brain-like computer processors. 

The workshop is focussed on using the Nengo brain simulator, developed by Professor Chris Eliasmith's lab in the Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience, to build state-of-the-art cognitive and neural models. This software was used to build the world's largest functional brain model, Spaun, and provides users with a versatile and powerful environment for simulating cognitive and neural systems.

All are welcome to the open house.
