Ortelio participates in the ICT proposers day, held in Florence, Italy, between9 and 10 October 2014. The networking event was held to promote European ICT Research & Innovation, focusing on the Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2015. Our participation focused on two works in progress: The first concerns the development of a spiking neural network using carbon nanotubes. The second concerns a robotic emulated neocortex for mobile platforms. We are keen to further discuss these with potential research partners.
