NEUROTEC project successfully enters second phase
Neuromorphic computers on the way to application
The NEUROTEC project, which RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich are jointly conducting under the umbrella of JARA, has now entered its second phase. Funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF), JARA-FIT Professor Rainer Waser wants to bring neuromorphic computers into application in the project.
Neuromorphic computers are computers that are structured along the model of the human brain and whose processes run in the same way. Until now, these computers, which are mainly characterized by their efficiency, are still an object of intensive research. However, JARA-FIT Professor Rainer Waser wants to change this in his NEUROTEC project. Started at the beginning of 2020, the project is now entering its second phase, in which practice-oriented demonstrators are to be developed. The project network, which is coordinated by Forschungszentrum Jülich, has now received total funding of around 36 million euros for the next five years from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
Further information on the second phase of the project is available on the websites of Forschungszentrum Jülich and RWTH Aachen University.
