For 17 years, ISR faculty, staff and students have been key to the success of the Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering Workshop, a three-week international event held each summer in Telluride, Colo. The local newspaper, Telluride Daily Planet, ran a feature story about the workshop on July 17.
Professors Shihab Shamma (ECE/ISR), Avis Cohen (Biology/ISR), Associate Professor Timothy Horiuchi (ECE/ISR), and ISR-affiliated Professor Ralph Etienne-Cummings all are on the workshop's Board of Directors and Advisory Board. In addition, ISR staff member Pam White provides significant organizational support each year.
In addition, ISR affiliated faculty Patrick Kanold (Biology) and Yiannis Aloimonos (CS/UMIACS) are regularly involved in the workshop, which many ISR students have attended over the years.
