De missie van het Center for Cognitive Systems and Materials van de Rijksuniversiteit Groningen is om materiaal-gecentreerde systeemparadigma te ontwikkelen voor cognitieve computing gebaseerd op modelling en leren op alle levels. Van materialen die kunnen leren tot apparaten, circuits en algoritmen.
The Center for Cognitive systems and Materials (CCS&M) is new research initiative that started in mid 2017. Thanks to a significant private donation, we are able to initiate a research program that addresses fundamental questions of relevance for developing materials and systems for cognitive computing. CCS&M originates from one of the pillars of the ERCET project (European Research Center for Exascale Technology) initiated by the University of Groningen ( www.ercet.eu ), which welcomes industrial and academic partners as potential users of the university research outcomes. CCS&M focuses on the fundamental research aspects and aims to generate focus and critical mass with the goal of bringing new materials into the new generation of cognitive computers. Tens of PhD students from different disciplines will work for seven years towards this goal.
