Neuronal networks from Cortical human iPSCs for Machine Learning Processing- NEU-ChiP

Project description

Harnessing the computing power of the human brain

Today’s use of AI and machine learning is becoming ever more prevalent in crucial areas like healthcare, finance, autonomous vehicles and speech recognition. However, enormous investments in the field’s present approaches to machine learning and neuromorphic computing have serious limits, requiring ever-growing computing power and high energy demands. To achieve a breakthrough in this field, the EU-funded NEU-ChiP project will study how human brain stem cells grown on a microchip can be taught to solve problems from data. Using sophisticated 3D computer modelling, an interdisciplinary consortium will conduct an observation of processes of cells’ changes and their plasticity to enable a major change in machine learning technology.
