StoLab scientists took part in the next Baltic Forum on Neurosciences, Artificial Intelligence and Complex Systems (Kaliningrad)
From September 14 to 16, StoLab scientists took part in the next Baltic Forum on Neurosciences, Artificial Intelligence and Complex Systems. This forum is held for the second time on the basis of the Immanuel Kant Baltic Federal University (Kaliningrad) and this year has combined two conferences on a single platform: the Fourth International Conference «Neurotechnologies and Neurointerfaces» (CNN 2022) and the VI Scientific School «Dynamics of Complex Networks and their Applications» (DCNA 2022). The forum program included 11 plenary lectures, a round table and discussions in various formats, a competition for young scientists and more than 180 invited, oral and poster presentations distributed in three to five parallel sections daily.
The new format of the forum events was presented by a mini-symposium on memristive systems (Complexity in Condensed Matter: Memristive Systems and Networks for Artificial and Hybrid Intelligence), which was first organized as part of DCNA 2022 by the Stochastic Multistable Systems Laboratory. The program of the mini-symposium included 20 reports, among which 15 invited reports were made in person and remotely by participants from Italy, Spain, Germany, Serbia, South Korea and leading researchers from Russia. The mini-symposium was opened by reports of B. Spagnolo and A.N. Mikhaylov, who highlighted from different angles the new results of the StoLab interdisciplinary team on the way to creating intelligent neuromorphic and neurohybrid systems based on a biosimilar element base, obtained within the framework of a mega-grant and the Russian Science Foundation project No. 21-11-00280, which is aimed at developing and demonstrating a prototype hippocampus based on advanced memristive electronics and a new biophysical concept of a multidimensional brain.
In total, 23 employees from UNN took part in the forum events. A significant contribution of UNN scientists to the forum program was, among other things, related to the results of work carried out within the framework of the scientific program of the National Center for Physics and Mathematics (project «Artificial intelligence and big data in technical, industrial, natural and social systems») and included in 11 reports presented on the forum.
A young researcher, a post-graduate student of the Faculty of Radiophysics, Ivan Kipelkin, with a report on the memristive model of a neuron-like generator, received an honorary diploma of the third degree at the competition of young scientists. We congratulate the winner and wish him new successes in science!
