On Friday 7th February 2020, 09:00, Friedemann will talk about “Building functional neural networks in-silico” at the Bench to Bedside Symposium at Uni Basel Pharmazentrum, Hörsaal 1, Klingelbergstrasse 50/70, 4056 Basel.
“Bringing the Power of Gradient-based optimization to spiking neural networks” We are happy to announce that our tutorial paper on Surrogate Gradient Learning in spiking neural networks now appeared in the IEEE Signal Processing Magazine.Continue reading
Our perspective paper on how systems neuroscience can benefit from deep learning was published today. In work led by Blake Richards, Tim Lillicrap, and Konrad Kording, we argue that focusing on the three core elements usedContinue reading
A range of exciting developments around surrogate gradient methods has put researchers in the position to build sophisticated functional spiking neural networks that compute specific functions. A major hurdle to further accelerate this line ofContinue reading
On Wednesday August 28th 2019 Friedemann will give a talk at the “Event-based Asynchronous Neuro-Cognitive Control” Symposium in Amsterdam which is kindly organized by Sander Bohte, Aditya Gilra, Qinghai Guo, and J. Camilo Vasquez Tieck.Continue reading
We are looking for an intrepid Ph.D. candidate to work on theoretical models of predictive processing and learning. This collaborative project with the Keller Lab is based on the hypothesis that cortical circuits build modelsContinue reading
