About ICNS

Advances in electronic device have had a massive impact on society. Increasing transistor density has so far enabled this growth but is now running into physical limitations.

Neuromorphic Engineering offers an alternative approach to increased computational performance by changing the structure of electronic circuits. Current electronic processors need increasing transistor density for increased performance, but Neuromorphic Engineering instead takes inspiration from the architecture and signal processing in biological neural systems to enhance performance. Western Sydney University is home to world leading researchers in neuromorphic engineering who undertake world changing research.

Spearheading this globally vital research is Western Sydney University’s new International Centre for Neuromorphic Systems (ICNS) - Western's next step in staking our claim in international excellence in this space.
