ECE Team bags First Prize at 2nd International Collegiate Competition for Brain-Inspired Computing
The ECE Team from Human Language Technology Laboratory emerged as one of the First Prize winners in the 2nd International Collegiate Competition for Brain-Inspired Computing. Supervised by Prof Li Haizhou, the winning team comprised three PhD students Wu Jibin, Pan Zihan and Zhang Malu, and A*STAR collaborator Chua Yansong.
They received a certificate, as well as prize money of RMB 100,000. The award recognises the latest technology breakthrough in neuromorphic automatic speech recognition, a biologically plausible spiking neural network that is inspired by the anatomical structure of the human cochlea and human auditory attention mechanism.
300 teams from 84 international institutions participated in the competition held on 14 October 2018 in Tsinghua University, China. The participating entries covered hardware, software, and applications in the area of brain-inspired computing for artificial general intelligence.
