The EU Marie Curie Actions has awarded about EUR 4 million to MANIC (Materials for Neuromorphic Circuits), an Innovative Training Network, to be coordinated by Prof. Beatriz Noheda of the Zernike Institute for Advanced Materials (ZIAM) and co-coordinated by Dr. Jean Fompeyrine (IBM Research-Zurich). Prof. Jos Roerdink and Prof. Lambert Schomaker (Bernoulli Institute for Mathematics, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence) also participate in this European multidisciplinary consortium.
The three professors are members of the CogniGron center, where the ideas behind MANIC originate from. The MANIC network will prepare fifteen young and talented scientists for the development of materials that can function as networks of neurons and synapses by integrating conductivity, plasticity and self-organization. These materials will become the key elements in a new generation of electronic devices that will be able to adapt to software and enable efficient learning.
In MANIC, the students will be trained in a highly multidisciplinary and international environment formed by twelve research groups and eleven partners from the private sector, based in Switzerland, France, Spain, Germany, United Kingdom, Belgium and the Netherlands.
The next big step in the development and adoption of AI was discussed at the YAN event that was held on November 23.
