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.
Andrew Katumba and Peter Bienstman form Imec published their most recent work on Journal of Lightwave Technology, “A Neuromorphic Silicon Photonics Nonlinear Equalizer for Optical Communications with Intensity Modulation and Direct Detection” (link)
Carlos, Nathan, and collaborators from IBM and the Universities of Exeter, Oxford, Münster publihsed their most recent work on Science Advances, titled “In-memory computing on a photonic platform” (link). Abu and Harish also wrote a post on IBM Research Blog (link).
