West Lafayette, Ind. (WLFI) - Purdue is now leading a national center for computing.
The Center for Brain-inspired Computing or C-BRIC started operations this month.
The goal is to develop and shape the future for brain-inspired computing for autonomous systems.
That includes technology like drones and robots that operate on their own.
The Semiconductor Research Corporation is supporting the five-year project with $27 million in funding.

They are addressing core technology challenges that enable the next generation of research.
"We are especially excited to do this here at Purdue with Purdue leading this nationwide network of premier universities and in a topic that is very timely," Raghunathan said. "I think AI is probably one of the biggest technologies of our lives that we will come across in our lifetimes."
