INI becomes part of the new Faculty for Informatics!

From today, the INI is part of the new Faculty of Informatics which comes into formal existence this very day! We are very happy to be part of this new enterprise, and hope to aim high.. Already we are busily working with our new colleagues to structure the new environment... Stay tuned.. .

The Institut für Neuroinformatik (INI) is a central research unit of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum. We aim to understand the fundamental principles through which organisms generate behavior and cognition while linked to their environments through sensory systems and while acting in those environments through effector systems. Inspired by our insights into such natural cognitive systems, we seek new solutions to problems of information processing in artificial cognitive systems. We draw from a variety of disciplines that include experimental approaches from psychology and neurophysiology as well as theoretical approaches from physics, mathematics, electrical engineering and applied computer science, in particular machine learning, artificial intelligence, and computer vision.
