Neuromorphic Hackathon

A hackathon organized by Fortiss & neuroTUM

We are offering together with Fortiss the opportunity of working on hands-on projects for a 4-day hackathon on neuromorphic computing. This event will dive deeper into the applications of neuromorphic technology. Furthermore, we will have highlight talks on this technology provided by Fortiss, TUM and Intel.
Apply Now!

The event will take place from the 6th to 9th of November.
