Applied Brain Research takes home the coveted European Automotive Start Up of the Year Award 2019

At TU-Automotive Europe

MUNICH, Wednesday October 30, 2019 – TU-Automotive is thrilled to announce that Applied Brain Research has won this year’s Start Up Elevate. The prize was awarded in recognition of their work in using brain inspired technology to build leading-edge, more efficient AI systems for a range of manufacturers including Tier One automotives.

About Applied Brain Research

ABR builds, and makes tools for building, intelligent real-time AI control systems, for cars, phones, drones, cameras and ioT devices. Nengo is ABR's brain building software. Nengo was used to build Spaun, the world's largest, functional brain simulation. Neuromorphic AI systems are often composed of many real-time, dynamically-integrated neural networks. Developers visually build, connect and debug their brain's networks at a high level in Nengo. Running neuromorphic AI 'brains' involves orchestrating the activity of thousands to millions of independent digital neurons. Nengo takes care of this by compiling the developer's high-level brain specification into the required instructions to run the model on the desired system, whether a CPU, a GPU or one of the new neuromorphic chips being developed by ABR, Intel and others. Nengo: Build brains not just networks. Download Nengo from www.nengo.ai.
