18.03.2019 – 1st Cross disciplinary training session

Many thanks to Dr. Abu Sebastian and Dr. Simon Stringer!

During the 1st of our programmed cross-disciplinary training session, they delivered two extremely interesting talks.

Dr. Sebastian is Principal Research Staff Member at IBM Zurich, particularly focused on neuromorphic and in-memory computing research. He explored the fundamentals and applications of phase-change memory devices.

Dr. Stringer leads the Oxford Centre for Theoretical Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence, based within the Department of Experimental Psychology. He provided a picture of the modelling techniques in brain science, in particular tackling the “binding problem” embedded in spiking neural network.
