The Material World (BBC Radio 4)

Plymouth University researcher Dr Martin Coath is to appear live on BBC Radio 4s flagship science current affairs program "The Material World" on the 15th December (at 16.30) in advance of a day of presentations he will be giving at the Science Museum in London on Saturday 17th.  

 

Dr Coath is a co-author of a paper, recently accepted for publication in the Journal "Frontiers in Neuromorphic Engineering", describing state-of-the-art research into the design of systems using brain-like silicon chips.  This work was carried out in close collaboration with the Institute of Neuroinformatics in Zurich, who were responsible for the design of the chips, and the University of Bielefeld in Germany, and is part of the European Union funded  `SCANDLE' project based at Plymouth University (www.scandal.eu)

Prof. Susan Denham of Plymouth University, in overall charge of the project, said: "In SCANDLE, we are very excited about the possibilities opened up by this work for building new brain-inspired devices."
