INI researchers receive BMBF grant to work on event-based distributed AI algorithms

INI researchers led by Dr. Anand Subramoney and Dr. David Kappel have successfully received funding as part of the funding program "BMBF - OCTOPUS - Electronic systems for trustworthy and energy-efficient decentralised dataprocessing in edge-computing", the project "EVENTS - Energy-efficient distributed sensor-systems for machine vision: event-based distributed AI algorithms".

The grant aims to develop efficient general-purpose AI algorithms that can be adapted for deployment on energy-efficient neuromorphic systems for computer vision. The project consortium led by TU Dresden will implement and test the algorithms developed at INI, RUB on innovative neuromorphic hardware in various pilot applications.

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.
