Training Resources

Training Events – International Schools

Three intensive international schools each focussing on one of the application areas of the project: Prosthetics, Robotics and Technologies for touch. 5 days of research related frontal lectures in the morning, hands-on tutorials, coding sessions or discussion groups in the afternoon and invited talks in the evenings. Two days will be dedicated to soft skills training.

Suggested Reading

Develop information theoretic methods, based on the new concept of intersection information, to measure how much tactile information carried by a spiking neural code is used to implement specific behaviors in perceptual-guided tasks.
