About us

We want to understand the principles of biological information processing. How does the brain work?

The brain is the most complex system we know.  It is one of the biggest blank spots on the scientific map. We want to contribute to its understanding.

Why is a cockroach still better adapted to its environment than the best computer? 

How do we comprehend the content of images and language? 

We are seeking to understand these still unknown principles of information processing and to apply them to technical systems.

Our research focus lies on:

  • Neural Networks
  • Machine Learning
  • Pattern and Object Recognition
  • Human Vision
  • Modelling Neural Processes
