FACETS: Fast Analog Computing with Emergent Transient States

Participant : Théodore Papadopoulo.

Duration: September 2005 to July 2010

FACETS is an integrated project within the biologically inspired information systems branch of IST-FET. The FACETS project aims at addressing, with a concerted action of neuroscientists, computer scientists, engineers and physicists, the unsolved question of how the brain computes. It combines a substantial fraction of the European groups working in the field into a consortium of 13 groups from Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. About 80 scientists have joined their efforts over a period of 4 years, starting in September 2005. A project of this dimension has rarely been carried out in the context of brain-science related work in Europe, in particular with such a strong interdisciplinary component (web site: http://facets.kip.uni-heidelberg.de/ ).
