Kick-off for NEUROTEC
The human brain is still the most powerful and efficient computer in the world. Multiple processes proceed in parallel and the organ requires only a very small amount of energy. Not surprisingly, modern science wants to transfer the qualities of the brain to novel computer architectures. In the NEUROTEC project, under the umbrella of JARA, scientists from RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich are working on these so-called neuromorphic computer systems.
In a ceremony on 8 January, project coordinator Prof. Rainer Waser (JARA-FIT), Prof. Wolfgang Marquardt, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Forschungszentrum Jülich, and Thomas Trännapp, permanent representative of the Chancellor of RWTH Aachen University, received the certificate of support from North Rhine-Westphalia's Science Minister Isabel Pfeiffer-Poensgen.
