Abstract: Neuromorphic processors comprise hybrid analog/digital circuits that implement hardware models of biological systems, using computational principles analogous to the ones used by the nervous systems. The neuromorphic devices exhibit very slow, biologically plausible, time constants to well match the signals they are designed to process, such that they are inherently synchronized with the real-world…

Speaker: Dr Claudio Coppola, Queen Mary University of London Title: Learning Human Actions: from Perception to Robot Learning When: Wednesday 24th February, 1700-1800 Where: Zoom (free but registration required) https://universityofleeds.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZElf-yoqzotHtGwFMLgm2MJ3xMxGyBQA11w Abstract: While understanding and replicating human activities is an easy task for other humans, it is still a complicated skill to program into a robot….
Abstract: The nuclear industry has a long history of using remote equipment to support the operation and decommissioning of its facilities. However, as pressures grow to perform operations in nuclear environments more quickly, with fewer risks and at reduced costs, the need for robotic systems and, where possible, autonomous systems increases. This presentation will focus…
