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 brain models running on laptops, robots, and specialized brain-like computers while simulating neural functions. Among the brain-like computers used at the summer school is Loihi, a new neuromorphic chip developed Intel Labs.
The workshop is focused 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 AI applications that run on neuromorphic hardware.
