A cross-disciplinary team of researchers from the Universities of York, Stirling, Cardiff, Manchester, and Southampton are working together on an EPSRC-funded project, Edgy Organism, to develop a novel end-to-end neuromorphic design approach drawing inspiration from how data is processed and represented in the brain and build an efficient hardware architecture based on spiking neural networks. The project aims to develop novel computing solutions, that can autonomously and reliably detect illegal or harmful activities in crowded public spaces, with minimum intrusion of personal space and privacy. We are recruiting a team of outstanding researchers from Visual Neuroscience, Psychology, Edge Computing, AI/ML, and Neuromorphic Engineering, to work with us on achieving Edgy Organism project’s ambitious objectives.
