Răzvan FLORIAN

Răzvan Florian is leading one of the research groups of the Romanian Institute of Science and Technology, a non-governmental research institute that he founded as a more agile alternative to public research organizations. He is the author of several learning rules for spiking neural networks. The essential components of one of these rules, which has been developed trough mathematical derivations and computer simulations, have been later found by neuroscientists in the brain. Components of this learning rule were implemented in hardware in the Loihi neuromorphic chip developed by Intel, allowing it to learn from rewards and punishments. Răzvan has also founded two companies, Arxia and Epistemio. He is now working on deep-learning-based approaches to automated web development and curiosity-driven learning.
