IARPA Posts RFI on Neural Computing Principles

IARPA Posts RFI on Neural Computing Principles - top government contractors - best government contracting event

BlueBrainNIHThe Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity is soliciting ideas to apply neural information processing methods for the next-generation design of computers.

IARPA specifically encouraged computer scientists and neuroscientists in a FedBizOpps notice published Jan. 6 to submit input on the potential role of spike-based neuronal models and sparse codes in computing technology.

The agency also requested information about the human brain’s use of learning, asynchronous messaging, transient coordination and co-local memory storage mechanisms in an effort to determine how these concepts are applied in real-world settings.

Interested computer and brain specialists can send their responses to IARPA through Jan. 29.

IARPA plans to use submissions to create a workshop on the subject at the 2016 Neuro Inspired Computational Elements event that will be held from March 7 to 9 at the University of California at Berkeley.
