Anja Karliczek, Federal Minister of Education and Research, visited Forschungszentrum Jülich on September 18th. Among others, Markus Diesmann was given the chance to give a presentation on the relationship of artificial intelligence, neuroscience, and neuromorphic computing. He argued that neuromorphic computing is driving the next generation of artificial intelligence. Minister Karlicek could literally interact with neuromorphic hardware, the so-called SpiNNaker system, developed by our long-termn collaborators in Manchester, UK, namely the group of Steve Furber.
