Two processes are necessary to solve group decision making problems: a consensus process and a selection process. The consensus process is necessary to obtain a final solution with a certain level of agreement between the experts, while the selection process is necessary to obtain such a final solution. Clearly, it is preferable that the set of experts(More)
It is clear to all, after a moments thought, that nature has much we might be inspired by when designing our systems, for example: robustness, adaptability and complexity, to name a few. The implementation of bioinspired systems in hardware has however been limited, and more often than not been more a matter of artistry than engineering. The reasons for(More)
REMPARK project objective is to develop a personal health system with closed loop detection, response and action capabilities for the assessment and possible management of Parkinson's Disease (PD) patients. The project is developing a wearable monitoring system able to identify in real time the motor status of the PD patients and evaluating(More)
FATE is a project funded by the European Union under the program CIP/ICT-PSP with the main objective of organizing a big pilot on the automatic falls detection in aging people living at home. Automatic detection of falls is done in indoors and outdoors conditions, and in both cases the detection generates an alarm sent to a call center. The detection system(More)

Vertebrate and most invertebrate organisms interact with their environment through processes of adaptation and learning. Such processes are generally controlled by complex networks of nerve cells, or neurons, and their interactions. Neurons are characterized by all-or-none discharges—the spikes— and the time series corresponding to the sequences of the(More)
This paper introduces Perplexus, a European project that aims to develop a scalable hardware platform made of custom reconfigurable devices endowed with bio-inspired capabilities. This platform will enable the simulation of large-scale complex systems and the study of emergent complex behaviors in a virtually unbounded wireless network of computing modules.(More)
SpiNDeK (Spiking Neural Network Design Kit) is an integrated design tool intended to support the development of emulation of complex bioinspired neural networks. In this work, the most relevant aspects of the tool are reported, regarding the generation of connections as well as synapse and neuron parameters of spiking neural networks as well as the(More)
In this paper we describe the hardware implementation of a spiking neuron model, which uses a spike time dependent synaptic (STDS) plasticity rule that allows synaptic changes by discrete time steps. For this purpose it is used an integrate-and-fire neuron with recurrent local connections. The connectivity of this model has been set to 24-neighbour, so(More)
