 +    and integrate feature items to group them into perceptual units 
 +    segregating them from other objects and the background. A 
 +    framework is discussed which explains how perceptual grouping at 
 +    early as well as higher-level cognitive stages may be implemented 
 +    in cortex. Different grouping mechanisms are implemented which are 
 +    attuned to basic features and feature combinations and mainly 
 +    evaluated along the forward sweep of stimulus processing. However, 
 +    due to limitations of local feature detection mechanisms and 
 +    inherent ambiguities,​ top-down feedback is required to deliver 
 +    contextual information helping to disambiguate initial 
 +    measurements. Feedback of contextual information is demonstrated 
 +    to improve object recognition performance,​ stabilize learning of 
 +    object categories, and integrate multi-sensory representations. 
 + 
 +    The canonical principles of neural computation define a set of 
 +    core operations to implement above-mentioned mechanisms of 
 +    perceptual and cognitive inference. These operations can be 
 +    mapped, in a simplified form, onto neuromorphic platforms to 
 +    emulate brain-like computation. It is demonstrated that an 
 +    architecture composed of canonical circuit mechanisms can be 
 +    mapped onto neuromorphic chip technology facilitating low-energy 
 +    non-von Neumann computation.</​blockquote>​</​td></​tr><​tr valign="​top"><​td>​2019-11-26</​td><​td>​IIS guest <span style="​font-weight:​bold">​Tamim Asfour</​span>,​ Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, ​ gives an invited keynote <​i>​Engineering Humanoids with Motion Intelligence</​i>​ at <a href="​https://​www.uibk.ac.at/​informatik/​studium/​inday-students/​index.html.en">​inday students</​a>​. ​<span class="​actions"><​a href="​javascript:​void(0)"​ onclick="​showHide('​newsitem3',​ '​Abstract'​)">​[Abstract]</​a></​span><​blockquote id="​newsitem3Abstract"​ style="​display:​none">​Humanoid robotics plays a central role in robotics 
 +    research as well as in understanding intelligence. Engineering 
 +    humanoid robots that are able to learn from humans and 
 +    sensorimotor experience, to predict the consequences of actions 
 +    and exploit the interaction with the world to extend their 
 +    cognitive horizon remains a research grand challenge. Currently,​ 
 +    we are experiencing AI systems with superhuman performance in 
 +    games, image and speech processing. However, the generation of 
 +    robot behaviors with human-like motion intelligence and 
 +    performance has yet to be achieved. In this talk, I will present 
 +    recent progress towards engineering 24/7 humanoid robots that link 
 +    perception and action to generate intelligent behavior. I will
