Spikenet Technology winner of the Innovation & Future Prize in 2011

There were 185 competitors for five categories and a jury of 138 experts at the 31st Midi-Pyrénées regional Inn’Ovations competition! Seven winners were finally chosen, including Spikenet Technology in the Innovation & Future category for its bio-inspired, intelligent, spike-detecting retina. A new generation of intelligent "robot" cameras, whose retinas imitate the human visual system by processing impulses as they arrive rather than waiting for the entire image.

The project exploits two important technological breakthroughs: the retina itself and the mechanism for unsupervised learning via STDP (Spike Timing-Dependent Plasticity). The award recognised the creativity of the Spikenet team and the innovative and revolutionary nature of its technology. (Video)

Spikenet Technology helps teach robots to play Memory

Second-year students studying for a Master's in Intelligent Systems Engineering at Paul Sabatier University (Toulouse) have developed a robot called Jiminy, as part of a large-scale study project between November 2011 and March 2012. To make their robot a genuine playmate, they successfully incorporated Spikenet's enhanced visual technology, enabling it to recognise a child, learn to play educational games, and even detect cheating. It was officially presented to the public on 1 March 2012.

Perhaps before too long, Jiminy will be the must-have Christmas present! (Video)
