Slide title: Workshop Recommendations: Building Brain-like Devices and Systems

Slide words:
Theodore Berger
University of Southern California

Problem: Integration of Brain and Computing Systems

Multi-Disciplinary Components:
1. Biomimetic modeling of neurons and neural systems (neuroscience, mathematics, biomedical engineering)
2. Hardware implementation (VLSI) of neural models for parallelism, rapid computational speed, and miniaturization (computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering)
3. Multi-site electrode recording/stimulation arrays to interface devices with the brain (material science, physics, chemistry)

Slide image: Illustration of a human head showing the brain containing an implant (VLSI Biomimetic Model) communicating with the hippocampus. Other labels are: long-term memory, short-term memory, Multi-Site Electrode Array, Output, Input
