Professor Francken Symposium "Cognitive Matters"

When:We 12-05-2021 10:00 - 17:00
Where:Hybrid Online & On-site

The Applied Physics student organization Professor Francken, has organized a Symposium "Cognitive Matters" that will be held on May 12th, with very interesting speakers from NL and abroad, including world-leading expert in spintronic devices Julie Grollier and other renowned researchers speaking on different types of devices that are relevant in the field of cognitive computing, from IBM-Research, U. Twente, U. Eindhoven and U. Geneva. Please see and register here:

Materials form the basis of our environment and is a big focus point in the field of applied physics. Development of new kinds of materials have lead to big technological advancements of things like 3D printing, smart materials, perovskite solar cells. In recent years there has been a lot of research in smart and self-learning materials. This year's symposium will have the research field of cognitive systems and materials as its focus point. This field of research comprises the fields of (applied) physics, mathematics, computer science and artificial intelligence. Our symposium will mainly focus on the (applied) physics. Six speakers will share their knowledge on new developments in different sub-fields of cognitive systems and materials.

As the organization we hope to welcome you the 12th of May to, what we hope, is a compelling and interesting day.
