Benoît Miramond (Université Côte d'Azur)


Short bio

Benoît Miramond is full Professor at the laboratory LEAT of Université Côte d'Azur. He is currently the head of the Neuromorphic Engineering Group from LEAT. He is leader of the international ANR project SOMA (neural-based Self-Organizing Machine Architecture) in collaboration with INRIA at Bordeaux, LORIA at Nancy and HESSO in Geneva from 2018 to 2021. In this context, his research is following an interdisciplinary approach to explore novel adaptive hardware architectures inspired from neurosciences and cognitive sciences for embedded AI applications.


Research topic | Bio inspired AI from neurosciences to embedded autonomous devices 

The research project seeks to draw on the structure and function of the biological brain to develop more energy-efficient AI methods and algorithms. 
The scientific approach ranges from neural dynamics to the emerging cognitive properties of these networks and ultimately to the design of embedded neuromorphic electronic circuits. 
The project will focus on building bridges between the NeuroMod neuroscience institute and the 3IA Cote d'Azur institute.
