The diploma for the IEEE Brain Best Paper Award Runner Up

Runner-up IEEE Brain award for student paper

We are proud to announce that three of our master students, Jørgen Jensen Farner, Håkon Weydahl and Ruben Jahren, supervised by PhD candidate Kristine Heiney, have won the runner up award for IEEE Brain Best Paper.

The paper is a result of a student project conducted in the master course of Evolutionary AI and Robotics, in the Applied Computer and Information Technology programme (ACIT). This master course is led by Professor Stefano Nichele. 


This year's IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence (IEEE SSCI) was held on the 5th to the 7th of December.

The paper titled “Evolving spiking neuron cellular automata and networks to emulate in vitro neuronal activity” (arxiv.org) was presented and published as a conference paper in the International Conference on Evolvable Systems (ICES).
