Bio-inspired Circuits & Systems

The Bio-inspired Circuits and Systems research group, chaired by Prof. Elisabetta Chicca, was established in August 2020 at the Groningen Cognitive Systems and Materials Center (CogniGron) and the Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Groningen.

We aim to identify the principles of neural computation and implement them in fully parallel and low-power neuromorphic very-large-scale integration (VLSI) systems that offer the opportunity to overcome the limitations of traditional digital architectures. Hereby we develop silicon implementations of neural networks with learning abilities and biologically inspired sensor systems, which allow us to validate current theories of learning and computation.
