About Ikaros

The goal of the project is to develop an open infrastructure for system level modeling of the brain including databases of experimental data, computational models and functional brain data. The system makes heavy use of the emerging standards for Internet based information and will make all information accessible through an open web-based interface. In addition, Ikaros can be used as a control architecture for robots which in the extension will lead to the development of a brain inspired robot architecture.

The main components of the Ikaros systems are:

The Ikaros project started at Lund University Cognitive Science (LUCS) in 2001. The system is now used at several universities and reseach institutes throughout the world.
