Waterloo researchers win three top NSERC awards

Including Chris Eliasmith, who was given the prestigious John C. Polanyi Award for his computer model of the human brain. Cool stuff, and advancing the rise of our kind and benevolant robot overlords (remember the suck-up when you guys come to power - k?).

Three Waterloo academics are named among Canada’s Top Natural Sciences and Engineering Researchers for 2015 by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) today.

The work of these researchers is advancing human brain research using computer models, decreasing the environmental impacts of mining and increasing our understanding of invasive species.
