innovation for industry
Press release | New industrial production processes
Targeted Applications Include High-Dimensional Distributed Environmental Monitoring, Implantable Medical-Diagnostic Microchips, Wearable Electronics & Human/Computer Interfaces
The MeM-Scales project aims at lifting neuromorphic computing in analog spiking microprocessors to an entirely new level of performance, said Elisa Vianello, manager of CEA-Leti's AI program and the coordinator of the MeM-Scales project. Our work is based on a dedicated commitment that novel hardware and novel computational concepts must co-evolve in a close interaction between nano-electronic device engineering, circuit-and-microprocessor design, fabrication technology and computing science: machine learning and nonlinear modeling.
These cross-disciplinary efforts will lead to the fabrication of an innovative hardware/software platform as a basis for future products combining extreme power efficiency with robust cognitive computing capabilities, Vianello said. This new kind of computing technology will open new perspectives; for instance, for high-dimensional distributed environmental monitoring, implantable medical-diagnostic microchips, wearable electronics and human-computer interfaces.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
