Giacomo Indiveri

Giacomo Indiveri is a dual Professor at the Faculty of Science of
the University of Zurich and at Department of Information
Technology and Electrical Engineering of ETH Zurich,
Switzerland. He is the director of the Institute of
Neuroinformatics of the University of Zurich and ETH Zurich. He
obtained an M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering in 1992 and a
Ph.D. degree in computer science from the University of Genoa,
Italy in 2004.
Engineer by training, Indiveri has also expertise in neuroscience,
computer science, and machine learning. He has been combining
these disciplines by studying natural and artificial intelligence
in neural processing systems and in neuromorphic cognitive
agents. His latest research interests lie in the study of
spike-based learning mechanisms and recurrent networks of
biologically plausible neurons, and in their integration in
real-time closed-loop sensory-motor systems designed using
analog/digital circuits and emerging memory technologies. His
group uses these neuromorphic circuits to validate brain inspired
computational paradigms in real-world scenarios, and to develop a
new generation of fault-tolerant event-based neuromorphic
computing technologies. Indiveri is senior member of the IEEE
society, and a recipient of the 2021 IEEE Biomedical Circuits and
Systems Best Paper Award. He is also an ERC fellow, recipient of
three European Research Council grants.
