“We have developed a novel computational framework that can create flexible and configurable application systems to run on this super-computer hardware – or on any other neuromorphic chips or systems.”
Principal Investigator and project lead for the NeuCube is Professor Nikola Kasabov, director of Auckland University of Technology’s Knowledge, Engineering and Discovery Research Institute (KENRI).
For the first time the NeuCube framework will be used to combine all types of spatiotemporal brain data (STBD) related to a given problem (e.g. EEG, fMRI, DTI, structural, genetic) in order to model and understand complex spatio-temporal relationships across the data sets. This is the main method on which the EU H2020 proposal submitted in 2014 is based, with the participation of 8 EU partners and KEDRI, KEDRI being the world leader on the topic. The results will be used in other INTELLECTE/2 projects.

Kiwi scientists set to unveil next generation of computing power
The NeuCube neurocomputer Professor Kasabov originated draws upon the same information-processing principles in our brains, where information is represented in temporal sequences of electrical signals, or “spikes”.
“If we can use this neurocomputer to capture ...
