About the Presentation:
Convergent advances in brain modeling, neuroinformatics, neuromorphic engineering, and low-power parallel computing are opening the door to the design and fielding of large-scale neural models for application domains ranging from sense-making to mobile robotics. This talk introduces the state-of-the-art advances in neuromorphic or brain-based computing, in particular its relevance to support advanced autonomous behavior in land and aerial vehicles. Max Versace, CEO of Neurala, Director of the Boston University Neuromorphics Lab and an expert in brain-based computing, will explain how ground/air robots can use passive sensors and commodity hardware emulating what biological systems do and use it to enable hands-free robot use. 

About the Speaker: 

Max Versace is the CEO of Neurala, Inc. and founding Director of the Neuromorphics Lab at Boston University.  He is a pioneer in the design of large scale, multi-system neural models that allow robots to interact and learn real-time in complex environments. He has authored approximately thirty journal articles, book chapters and conference papers, and has been an invited speaker at dozens of academic meetings, research and national labs and companies including: iRobot, Qualcomm, HP, Ericsson, BAE Systems, Mitsubishi and Accenture. His work has been featured in such esteemed articles and news programs as: IEEE Spectrum, New Scientist, Geek Magazine, CNN, MSNBC and others. Max has his PhD in Cognitive and Neural Systems from Boston University and his BS from University of Trieste, Italy. 

True to all of our United4Defense events, we will have a networking hour and will welcome a small discussion after the presentation. At this month's event we will snack on some great BBQ cuisine! 

*Attendance is Free of Charge, but please sign in at the lobby to gain entrance to the CIC Boston.

We look forward to seeing you there!
