We are happy to announce our participation in the Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering Workshop with the topic Neuromorphic tactile sensing for physical interaction and understanding (TAC21).

The Telluride Neuromorphic Neuromorphic Cognition and Engineering Workshop was born in 1993 and has been held annually ever since. It offers scientists from all areas of neuromorphic technologies a platform for exchange and collaboration on cutting edge technologies and applications towards biological intelligence. The hands-on project topics range from neuromorphic AI to circuit design challenges this year. An overview of all topics is available here.


The topic TAC21 is explicitly centred around neuromorphic touch and is composed of three projects. One project will develop object recognition strategies based on recorded spiking sensor data. Another, will investigate exploration with the iCub humanoid robot in simultion and remotly and the last aims to design spiking tactile readout circuits for a provided transducer model.

The participation in the workshops is not mandatory, even if you do not want to join in an active capacity you are invited to follow exciting speakers who are:

  • Nitish V. Thakor, Johns Hopkins University
  • Hannes Saal, University of Sheffield
  • Veronica Santos, University of California, Los Angeles
  • Alan Emanuel, Harvard Medical School
  • Stefano Panzeri, Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia

You can find more information on the overall schedule here. Due to the pandemic situation, the workshop will be held online. This allows an unlimited number of participants and the choice between following the active or observer track. Another bonus of this situation: registration is FREE!
