What should the future look like?

An interview with Max Lemme over the Future-Cluster NeuroSys

In a video interview for the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology of RWTH Aachen University, Prof. Max Lemme explains the vision behind the Future-Cluster NeuroSys, the role of neuromorphic hardware in shaping the future of artificial intelligence applications, and the necessity of addressing not only the technical aspects, but also the socio-economic implications of this new technology, to ensure that it conforms “by design” with European values.

A scalable method for the large-area integration of 2D materials

Two-dimensional (2D) materials have a huge potential for providing devices with much smaller size and extended functionalities with respect to what can be achieved with today’s silicon technologies. But to exploit this potential we must be able to integrate 2D materials into semiconductor manufacturing lines – a notoriously difficult step. A team of researchers from Sweden and Germany now reports a new method to make this work.

Pioneering 2D materials for semiconductor industry – the 2D-Experimental Pilot Line presents itself

In October 2020, the European Commission launched the 2D-Experimental Pilot Line (2D-EPL), a new €20 million project aimed at developing the first pilot line to manufacture large volumes of electronic components based on graphene and related 2D materials. AMO GmbH is one of the partners of the project, together with Aixtron Ltd. and Oxford Instruments (UK), imec (Belgium), iHP GmbH, Micro Resist Technology GmbH, Aixtron SA and Suss Microtech (Germany), Graphenea (Spain), and VTT (Finland).

MISEL: a new EU-project for developing an intelligent camera-sensor technology

AMO GmbH is partner of MISEL (Multispectral Intelligent Vision System with Embedded Low-Power Neural Computing), a project that aims at developing a bio-inspired vision system able to implement advanced recognition tasks, but with much smaller size, weight and power consumption than off-the-shelf components. The project is funded by the European Commission through the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation Programme with a total budget of 4.96 million Euros.
