IEEE Student Travel Award won by Ole Richter

The Neuromorphic Behaving Systems Group is proud to announce that Ole Richter won the 2016 IEEE Circuits and Systems Society Student Travel Award to attend the BioCAS15 conference and to present the paper "Device Mismatch in a Neuromorphic System Implements Random Features for Regression“.

In this paper the effect of random activations of a single-layer feed forward network due to device mismatch is evaluated. It is shown that these random activations produced by analog VLSI implementations of integrate and fire neurons are suited to solve multi dimensional, non-liinear regression tasks and can serve as random network weights.
