Waterloo researchers are invited to attend a workshop on Friday, June 21, hosted by NSERC, to learn about the new Alliance Grants. The Alliance Grants program supports collaboration between university researchers and partner organizations within the private, public, or not-for-profit sectors. The Alliance Grants program will be the cornerstone of NSERC’s collaborative-research funding vehicles, replacing familiar grants such as IRC, CRD, Strategic, Engage, and Connect.
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.
