Paper and live demo accepted for ISCAS 2020 in Seville, Spain

The Neuromorphic Behaving Systems Group is proud that a paper and a live demo have been accepted to be presented at the 2020 IEEE International Symposium on Circuits & Systems, to be held in Seville, Spain from May 17-20, 2020.

The paper "A Spiking Recurrent Neural Network with Phase Change Memory Synapses for Decision Making" deals with the stopic of neuromorphic computing with emerging devices. The paper presnts associative learning and decision making in a hardware Hopfield recurrent neural network (RNN) using phase change memory (PCM) synapses. The network is able to solve constraint satisfaction problems, such as Sudoku. The results support and encourage the use of spiking RNNs with PCM devices for decision making applications in hardware neuromorphic systems.

The live presentation "Neuromorphic Sensory Integration for Combining Sound Source Localization and Collision Avoidance" will showcase the use of two event-based sensors for vision and audition together. The neuromorphic demonstrator woll combine auditory and visual input information for finding an obstacle free direction closest to a sound source. The information are processed in a spiking neural network implemented on the SpiNNaker platform.
