Tobias Delbruck

Professor of Physics, Institute for Neuroinformatics (INI) - ETH


Tobi Delbruck (IEEE M’99–SM’06–F’13) received a Ph.D. degree from Caltech in 1993. Currently, he is a Professor of Physics and Electrical Engineering at ETH Zurich in the Institute of Neuroinformatics, University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, Switzerland, where he has been since 1998. His group focuses on neuromorphic sensors and processing. He has co-organized the Telluride Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering summer workshop and the live demonstration sessions at ISCAS and NIPS. Delbruck is past Chair of the IEEE CAS Sensory Systems Technical Committee and current Secretary of the IEEE Swiss CAS/ED Society. He has been awarded 9 IEEE awards.


Silicon Retina Technology

This talk will be about the history and development of asynchronous “silicon retina” vision sensors  that offer a spike event output like biological retinas. These  neuromorphic sensors offer unique advantages for real-world vision problems in terms of latency, dynamic range, temporal resolution, and post-processing cost. The talk will include live demonstrations of a sensor.
