We are the International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems.


  • We study and mimic biological brains and sensory organs to engineer compact, robust, and efficient artificial neural networks that out-perform classical computers and conventional sensors.
  • We design and build high-performance, energy-efficient sensors and processors, including algorithms and customised hardware, which are ideal for distributed, mobile, and autonomous applications in challenging and remote environments.
  • We also find answers to big questions like How does the brain work? and solutions for neurological damage or disease.
  • We’re training the next generation of neuromorphic engineers to meet growing demand in this increasingly important field.

  • We welcome your interest in our research and impact. To learn more, please explore our website or get in touch.

Research Streams

At ICNS, we are active in the three main sensory domains of bio-inspired perception: visual, audio and tactile.
Our neuromorphic processors mimic the way the brain processes information.
We develop novel algorithms for event-based processing.

By modelling the human auditory system in neuromorphic hardware, we acquire auditory processors for our mobile devices which outperform the state of the art auditory system in real world environments.
