Brief Bio
Axel Blau is team leader for neuromimetic architectures for information processing and biosensing devices at IIT. He holds a diploma (1995) and a PhD (1999) degree in physical chemistry both from the University of Tuebingen, Germany. From 1999 to 2001 he was a postdoctoral scholar in neurobiology at the California Institute of Technology focusing on optical recording techniques. Between 2002 and 2007 he held an assistant professorship in physics at the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany.


Nervous systems are efficient computing substrates that outperform conventional architectures in many real-world tasks, particularly in pattern recognition, classification and sensory-motor integration. Computational neuroscience has made tremendous progress in uncovering the key principles by which neural systems process information, and ICT has advanced to a point where it is possible to integrate a comparable number of transistors in a VLSI system as neurons in a mammalian brain. This session provides a forum for researchers, engineers, and students from all over the world to discuss the state-of-the-art in computational neuroscience, neural representations and processing primitives in soft- and hardware, signal processing models and machine intelligence by learning from nature and mimicking nervous system function.
