We have a number of available PhD and postdoc positions available now
for the Neuromorphic Processor Project (NPP). NPP is a 3 year project
that started 1 May 2015. NPP will develop theory, architectures, and
FPGA implementations targeting specific applications of deep neural
network technology in vision and audition. Deep learning has become the
state-of-the-art machine learning approach for sensory processing
applications, and this project aims towards real-time, low-power,
brain-inspired solutions targeted at full-custom SoC integration. A
particular aim of the NPP is to develop efficient data-driven deep
neural network architectures that can enable always-on operation on
battery-powered mobile devices in conjunction with event-driven sensors.
PhD and postdoc positions are available now in theory, hardware
architectures, and applications of these networks.
For the theory part of the project we are specifically looking for PhD
candidates with experience in deep neural networks and/or spiking neural
networks, or deep learning applications in vision and audition.
The project team includes academic partners in the USA, Canada, and
Spain. The project is coordinated by the Institute of Neuroinformatics
(INI) at the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich (www.ini.uzh.ch ). INI
is a joint institute of the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich and has
been cited in IEEE Spectrum and Scientific American as one of the
world’s leading organizations in the development of neuromorphic sensing
and computing technology. The lead NPP PI is Prof. Tobi Delbruck. Other
NPP PIs at INI are Dr. Shih-Chii Liu, Dr. Michael Pfeiffer, and Prof.
for more details and information on how to apply.
