Dr. J. Brad Aimone has been selected to participate in National Academy of Engineering’s (NAE) 23rd annual U.S. Frontiers of Engineering (USFOE) symposium. The 83 participants are among the nation’s most innovative young engineers who are performing exceptional engineering research and technical work in a variety of disciplines that will come together for the 2 1/2-day event. The participants are from industry, academia, and government and were nominated by fellow engineers or organizations. The 2017 USFOE will be hosted by United Technologies Research Center in East Hartford, Conn. and will cover cutting-edge developments in four areas: Mega-Tall Buildings and Other Future Places of Work, Unraveling the Complexity of the Brain, Energy Strategies to Power Our Future, and Machines That Teach Themselves. Dr. Aimone is currently working in the areas of theoretical neuroscience and neural-inspired computing. He has been leading the neural algorithms research team within Sandia’s Hardware Acceleration of Adaptive Neural Algorithms (HAANA) internal Grand Challenge LDRD, where he and others have been developing new brain-inspired approaches for next generation computing platforms.
