How do ears work? Can we model the ear to design hearing systems? This week we talk to neuromorphic engineer Tara Hamilton about about her work building digital analogues of the human ear. She also talks to us about her journey and how she has managed to combine biology with engineering.

#34 Seeing the world through Bioinspired cameras with Dr Greg Cohen

Greg 1400 p.png

Dr Greg Cohen is a researcher at the MARCS institute developing Bio-inspired cameras. These cameras mimic how the human eye works by only detecting changes rather than taking a picture of the whole field of view. In this episode, Greg talks to us about the utility of his camera in astronomy, detecting space junk, medical science, etc. We also talk about evolution algorithms, AI, his ping pong robot, and more.
