The HW/SW Interface Seminar Series: Computer System for Neuroscience

Monday, September 25, 2017 12:00pm - 1:00pm

Abhishek Bhattacharjee, Dept. of Computer Science, Rutgers, will present a talk in HW/SW Interface Seminar Series: "Computer System for Neuroscience". Abstract: Computer systems are vital to advancing our understanding of the brain. From embedded chips in brain implants to server systems used for large-scale brain modeling frameworks, computer systems help us shed light on the connections between low-level neuronal spiking activity and high-level functionality. This talk will show the challenges facing such computer systems.
