We are very happy that in their current issue Spektrum der Wissenschaft picked up our collaboration story with Uni Heidelberg on self-calibration through surrogate gradient learning in analog neuromorphic systems.
Lab members organized a station for a recent outreach event during which more than 200 high school students from Basel and surroundings visited the FMI to learn more about genetics and neuroscience research. At theContinue reading
Allison Whitten wrote a nice article for Quantamagazine about our recent collaboration with Heidelberg on the BrainScaleS-2 neuromorphic chip. Analog hardware faces similar obstacles as the brain when learning: Neuronal heterogeneity means that you won’tContinue reading
Here is a quick shout-out to this nice news story on spiking nets and surrogate gradients by Anil Ananthaswamy, the Science Communicator in Residence at the Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing in Berkeley.Continue reading
Dan Goodman and myself are organizing an online workshop on new approaches to training spiking neural networks, Aug 31st / Sep 1st 2020. Invited speakers: Sander Bohte (CWI), Iulia M. Comsa (Google), Franz Scherr (TUG), Emre Neftci (UC Irvine),Continue reading
