NEUROSCIENCE FOR ICT:
APPLICATIONS TO COMPUTATION AND ROBOTICS

4-6 JULY 2018, KALKSCHEUNE BERLIN, GERMANY

"Neuroscience for ICT: Applications to Computation and Robotics" is an interdisciplinary workshop aimed at giving an insight into Information and Communications Technology (ICT) to non-specialists. In particular, the workshop will provide the attendants with an understanding on the field of computational neuroscience and robotics.
In particular, the first day will provide the participants with a general overview on the HBP research infrastructure, followed by lectures on computational neuroscience where the participants gain a better understanding of the interaction between neuroscience and computation. The last session will focus on data management from a computational perspective.
During the morning session of the second day, we will provide talks from expert scientists in robotics and bio-inspired robotics. In the afternoon session, we intend to bridge the gap between computational technologies and neuroscience by providing a hands on experience with the HBP NeuroRobotics Platform (NRP).

 

Application is closed.
