Neural computing researchers at Sandia National Laboratories helped organize and facilitate the 5th Neuro-Inspired Computational Elements (NICE) Workshop at IBM Almaden in San Jose, CA. The meeting was attended by neural computing researchers from numerous universities, computing software and hardware companies, and national laboratories (including LLNL, LANL, and Oak Ridge). There was also a notable presence of international efforts in neural computing, including the leaders of the two neuromorphic EU Human Brain Project efforts as well as representatives from DOE, NSF, and DARPA. Sandia had four talks and a number of posters focused on topics including brain-inspired adaptive algorithms, neural learning theory, and neural hardware evaluation methods.
