Prof. Louri and his team presented a paper at the 49th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (IEEE/ACM Micro), Taipei, Taiwan, Oct. 16, 2016

The paper is titled “Dynamic Error Mitigation in NoCs using Intelligent Prediction Techniques” and presents seminal work on the use of machine learning in the design of next generation computer chips. The work is sponsored by grant from the NSF. IEEE/ACM Micro is the premier and flagship conference for computer architecture research

Prof. Louri and his team have recently published a paper at the ACM Nanocom’2016, New York, Sept. 2016. The paper is titled “Reconfigurable Optical and Wireless (R-OWN) Network-on-Chip for High Performance Computing”

The work is sponsored by a grant from the NSF has the potential to break through the fundamental limitations of metallic interconnects and to pave the way for continued scaling of chip performance..

Smart Contact Lens

Towards a Smart Contact Lens

The goal of this work is to develop a wearable head-up display. Our research will set a path the way towards functional microsystems that will superimpose information, via light, over a person’s field of view. In doing so, it overcomes the enigma of augmented reality, a known grand challenge for engineering today. With the ability to actualize augmented reality (AR), advancements in numerous applications will unfold. Incorporation of AR could be seen in various area, such as education, training, navigation, and cross-cultural communication. It could not only revolutionize human-machine-interface, but they could also bridge the gap between patients and healthcare professionals.

Magnetic Refrigeration Technology

Next Generation Refrigeration Technology: Magnetic Refrigeration with Nanoparticles

In the advancement of alternative energy sources, and the critical importance of the global warming, magnetic refrigeration is a promising energy efficient and environmentally friendly technology to replace conventional vapor-compression techniques. Our research aims to design, develop, and implement the first scalable commercially viable compressor-free magnetic refrigerator system.
