EBRAINS robot simulation has learned complex hand movements20 July 2022
Scientists are using the EBRAINS research infrastructure to simulate a robotic hand which can perform in-hand object manipulation. Their work makes use of a unique combination of EBRAINS services, including the high-performance computing infrastructure, the multilevel human brain atlas, and the neurorobotics platform.
A panel at the FENS forum discussed the challenges associated with sharing and reusing brain data - and how the EBRAINS research infrastructure seeks to address these challenges.
