We mourn Prof. Dr. rer. nat. Dres h.c. Heinz-Georg Wagner, Director Emeritus at the Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, (until 2004 Max Planck Institute for Flow Research). He died in Göttingen on 29 July 2020 at the age of 91. more

Neural networks in both biological settings and artificial intelligence distribute computation across their neurons to solve complex tasks. New research now shows how so-called “critical states” can be used to optimize artificial neural networks running on brain-inspired neuromorphic hardware. The study was carried out by scientists from Heidelberg University working within the Human Brain Project, and the Max-Planck-Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization (MPIDS). The results have been published in Nature Communications. more
