Seminar: dual use, future computing, neurorobotics in the Human Brain Project

As any other EU project, HBP is regulated to prevent research and technological development to be used for military or defense purposes (‘dual use’). Nevertheless there might be dual use interests in the project. In a two day seminar, HBP researchers and external experts met to initiate a dialogue on recognition and management of dual use issues in the HBP.
