Neuromorphic Computing

What is Neuromorphic Computing? Dr. Todd Hylton, Brain Corporation, spoke at the second IEEE Rebooting Computing Summit to share his insights and experiences. He stresses that building a computer from components that act as neurons is not the same thing as building a brain. Designing a computer with the functionality of a brain will be much more difficult.

Neurotechnological RevolutionNeurotechnological Revolution
by Jim Banks

Neurotechnology is the emerging field that brings together the development of technologies to study the brain and devices that improve and repair brain function. The world's scientific community is working hard to unravel the secrets of the brain’s computing power and to devise technologies that can heal it when it fails and restore critical functions to patients with neurological conditions.

Education & Careers

Life sciences is a wide and dynamic field that is being energized by other disciplines. The boom that has been already observed in the bio-medical domain is extending to other areas of life sciences, accompanied by many career opportunities and more exciting challenges for educational institutions.

IEEE summer school programs are offered by various IEEE societies and councils on hot topic areas. They consist of lectures and tutorials by international experts, and are usually 4-7 day long. Selection for attendance is based on a competitive application.

Here is one summer program that might be of interest to the Life Sciences Community:

2nd IEEE EMBS Summer School on Emerging Technologies and Applications in Telemedicine: Addressing the Challenges from Wearable Devices to Big Data in Healthcare, application due 1 June, 2015.
