Frontiers in Neuromorphic Engineering – Special Research Topic

The Frontiers in Neuromorphic Engineering journal plans a special research topic in 2013 on Neuromorphic Engineering Systems and Applications.

Relevant topics include:
– Sensors and applications of sensors, e.g. retina, cochlea, convolutional hardware such as NewFlow or ConvNet
– Robotics and sensors for robotics, e.g. locomotion, game playing robots,
– Applications of large scale AER systems, e.g. Neurogrid, SpiNNaker, FACETS
– Applications of hardware for machine learning and perception, e.g. synaptic plasticity, state-dependent networks, particularly those that address the issues of imprecision and its effect on performance
– Implementations of cognitive systems, e.g. hand designed networks of neurons or learned topologies for solving ‘cognitive’ problems in decision making or control
