Press release posted Apr 02, 2019 by Applied Brain Research

Toronto, Ontario, Canada – Apr. 2, 2019 – NBEL Innovation Workshops LTD is thrilled to announce a new partnership with Applied Brain Research Inc (ABR). ABR is based in Canada, and is one of the world’s leading neuromorphic engineering companies. ABR is revolutionizing computing by providing computational solutions based on the architecture of the brain.

ABR’s FPGA neuromorphic compute board, ABRain board, and ABR’s neuromorphic application development software tool-set, are able to run real-time neural networks quickly and efficiently.

NBEL Innovation Workshops, housed in Biohouse at the Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, is ABR’s exclusive distributor for the ABRain board in Israel.

This exciting new interface between neuroscience, computer science, and electrical engineering is anticipated to revolutionize the way we do computer vision, robotics and computerized cognitive tasks.

“We are very excited to be working closely with Dr. Tsur and his team at NBEL. Their depth of expertise in neuromorphic computing hardware and algorithms makes them the ideal partner to help the researchers and companies in Israel looking to be first-movers in capitalizing on the advances and power of neuromorphic computing,” said Peter Suma, co-CEO of ABR.

“At NBEL, we are thrilled to be part of this exciting endeavor with ABR and look forward to working with our Israeli customers to deliver cutting-edge neural research and commercial computational platforms like the ABRain board,” said Dr. Elishai Ezra Tsur, CEO of NBEL Innovation Workshops.
