‘Frontiers of Neuromorphic Computing’ workshop at MPL 5-7 September

A three day in-person workshop about the rapidly developing area of neuromorphic hardware concepts for deep learning applications

The recent explosion of deep learning applications urgently requires energy-efficient alternatives. This has given rise to the field of neuromorphic computing with the aim to develop new efficient hardware concepts running at high speeds and relying on a high degree of parallelism. This workshop will explore this rapidly developing area of (classical) neuromorphic computing over a range of scalable platforms, both on a theoretical and experimental level. These platforms include systems in the domains of optics, integrated photonics, spin systems, semi- and superconducting systems, soft matter, and others. In addition, new physical learning approaches will be discussed.

The in-person workshop is being organized by the Max Planck Institute for the Science of Light and ELLIS, the European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems. It will take place at MPL starting on 5 September at 9 am and end on 7 September at approximately 5:30 pm. There will be invited talks, contributed talks, a poster session and a panel discussion. On Wednesday, there will be a conference dinner which is included in the registration fee.


Please note, that the deadline for registration is 1 August!

Organizers: Clara Wanjura, Florian Marquardt, Bert Kappen, Wilfred van der Wiel, Victor Lopez Pastor
