News

Drs. Tarek El-Ghazawi and Volker Sorger have received a 3-year $675K award from the Airforce Office of Scientific Research

The new project is titled RANC: A Residue Arithmetic Nanophotonic Computer. The goal of the project is to develop an integrated photonics computing system (from device to architecture) based on the residue number system (RNS) to achieve orders of magnitude improvements in computational speed per watt, over the current state-of-the-art, while again computing at the speed of the light.

Drs. Sorger and El-Ghazawi awarded a $3M grant from ONR

The project entitled 'Photonic Convolutional Processor for Network Edge Computing' develops an accelerator for feature extraction known as convolutional neural network.
