The Neuromorphic Group at the Sevilla Microelectronics Institute (IMSE-CNM-CSIC) has an opening for a 4-year PhD position, whose research is to be developed within the context of the following research project:
BIOSENSE: EVENT BASED BIOINSPIRED SYSTEM FOR SENSORY FUSION AND NEOCORTICAL PROCESSING. HIGH SPEED AND LOW POWER APPLICATIONS FOR ROBOTICS AND AUTOMOTION
Research line: Microchips and FPGAs designs for Event-Driven Visual Sensing and Processing
Funding institution: Ministry of Economy and Competitivity of Spain
The goal of the National Robotics Initiative is to accelerate the development and use of robots in the United States that work beside, or cooperatively with, people. Innovative robotics research and applications emphasizing the realization of such co-robots acting in direct support of and in a symbiotic relationship with human partners is supported by multiple agencies of the federal government including the National Science Foundation (NSF), the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
1. US News & World Report (Science Section, April 10, 2012) published an article titled "Advancing Health and Robotics" by Marlene Cimons. This article describes the creation of the CSNE and its mission.
The 2009 publication, "A Roadmap for US Robotics. From Internet to Robotics" is available online. Especially noteworthy to the CSNE is Chapter 2 of this report titled "A Research Roadmap for Medical and Healthcare Robotics."
Dr. Andrew Williams (CSNE member and director of the Humanoid Engineering and Robot Systems Lab at Spelman College) attended a national convocation that highlighted best practices for improving science, technology, engineering and math education. At the meeting, Dr. Williams exhibited one of the robots used by students participating in the Spelman College "Spelbots" program. In the photo, Dr.
The National Science Foundation, National Institutes of Health and other federal agencies are co-sponsoring the National Robotics Initiative. The National Robotics Initiative seeks to accelerate the development and use of robots in the United States that work beside, or cooperatively with, people.
Spelman Seeks CSNE Mentors for Neural Informatics and Robotics Projects
Spelman College faculty and students seek sensorimotor neural engineering mentors and partners for three NSF funded grant projects in informatics and in robotics from CSNE partner institutions. Spelman is a historically black college for women located in Atlanta, GA and is a CSNE partner.
